1. Determine the domain. With your question

2. Isolate the roots:

3. Square both sides:

4. Isolate the root .... square both sides of the equation ... isolate the root ... etc until there aren't any roots left. You finally get:

Solve for x.

5. Since squaring isnotan equivalent transformation youmustcheck if you got a valid solution: Plug in the value for x into the original equation and check if you get a true statement.
