# Radical Equations Worksheets

How to Solve Radical Equations - Equations in Algebra are solved according to some rules. Once you have gained a command on those rules, solving an algebraic equation shouldn’t be that difficult. However, in the case of any equation having a radical sign, things can be a bit different. Any equation having a radical sign can be solved by isolating the term having the radical sign. If two terms have a radical sign, the equation can be solved by isolating any one of them. Once we have isolated the radical term, solving the rest of the equation is pretty easy. After isolating the radical term, all you have to do is get rid of the radical sign. The radical sign can be removed by simply raising the index of both sides of the equation to the index of the radical. For example, if the radical sign is a square root, then by raising the index of the whole equation to 2 can do the job. The square root will be cancelled by the exponent of two, and the radical signs will be removed. After that, the equation can be solved as per the general rules of solving a simple equation.
