Divide 1296 by 16.
t2=81
t2=81
Take the square root of both sides of the equation to eliminate the exponent on the left side.
t=±81
The complete solution is the result of both the positive and negative portions of the solution.
Simplify the right side of the equation.
Rewrite 81 as 92.
t=±92
Pull terms out from under the radical, assuming positive real numbers.
t=±9
t=±9
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.
t=9
Next, use the negative value of the ± to find the second solution.
t=-9
The complete solution is the result of both the positive and negative portions of the solution.
t=9,-9
t=9,-9
t=9,-9
