To remove the radical on the left side of the inequality, square both sides of the inequality.

Multiply the exponents in .

Apply the power rule and multiply exponents, .

Cancel the common factor of .

Cancel the common factor.

Rewrite the expression.

Simplify.

Raise to the power of .

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

The domain is all values of that make the expression defined.

Use each root to create test intervals.

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 always true.

True

True

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 not less than the right side , which means that the given statement is false.

False

False

Compare the intervals to determine which ones satisfy the original inequality.
