Subtract from both sides of the equation.

Take the square root of both sides of the equation to eliminate the exponent on the left side.

Simplify the right side of the equation.

Rewrite as .

Since both terms are perfect squares, factor using the difference of squares formula, where and .

The complete solution is the result of both the positive and negative portions of the solution.

First, use the positive value of the to find the first solution.

Next, use the negative value of the to find the second solution.

The complete solution is the result of both the positive and negative portions of the solution.

Set the radicand in greater than or equal to to find where the expression is defined.

Use each root to create test intervals.

Choose a test value from each interval and plug this value into the original inequality to determine which intervals satisfy the inequality.

Test a value on the interval to see if it makes the inequality true.

Choose a value on the interval and see if this value makes the original inequality true.

Replace with in the original inequality.

The left side is less than the right side , which means that the given statement is false.
