If any individual factor on the left side of the equation is equal to , the entire expression will be equal to .
Set the first factor equal to and solve.
Tap for more steps…
Set the first factor equal to .
Add to both sides of the equation.
Take the square root of both sides of the equation to eliminate the exponent on the left side.
The complete solution is the result of both the positive and negative portions of the solution.
Tap for more steps…
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 next factor equal to and solve.
