You should of course, check the solution. (Squaring both sides of an equation may introduce "extraneous" solutions.)

4- 2= 2 so the solution checks. - Aug 13th 2011, 08:09 AMmathmathmathmathmathmathmRe: equation w. radicals and exponenets
thanks so much prove it, but can you explain when you get the (x-7) squared, how do you elimate the second (x-7) in the last step? does it cancel itself out? dont understand that step, thanks again
