Equations involving square roots are difficult to solve because of the complexity involved in performing operations on the square root terms. But you can follow a series of steps to solve these problems easily. To solve these kind of problems first isolate the square root term on one side of the equation and the non square root terms on the other side of the equation. Now in the next step square both sides of the equation. This gets rid of the square root on the left hand side and the equation can now be simplified. In case you still have a square roots in the equation follow step one and two again. Finally solve the equation as you would solve any normal equation. This video shows how to solve equations involving square roots.
