In this lesson, we learn how to solve radical equations that become quadratic equations by isolating the square root and then squaring both sides. This leaves us with a quadratic equation that is easier to solve by factoring and checking each solution. It is important to check each solution in the original equation as sometimes neither solution or both solutions may check.
