How To: Solve an equation with fractional powers

Solve an equation with fractional powers

Solving equations involving fractional powers of a variable are not that hard to solve as they sound. In fact, just watch this video to learn a few tips and solving these type of equations will become a little bit easier. This video basically just solves a sample fractional equation. The equation is stated and adjusted accordingly to make it easier to solve. The fractional powers on both the sides of the equation are then removed by applying an appropriate mathematical function. Finally, through subsequent steps, the equation is equated to 0 and factorized. The results are then stated and verified by simple back substitution.
