Multi-Step Equations: Solving Radical Equations

Common Core Grade Level: 
Packet includes: 
36 practice problems and an answer key.

This packet helps students practice how to solve radical ($\sqrt{square root}$) equations.  The operation that is reciprocal to finding the square root of a number is squaring (exponent = 2) a number.  To get rid of a radical, students need to square square roots (the same way that they would divide $6x$ by $6$ to isolate the variable $x$).  This packet gives students practice with those operations.

Each page starts with easier problems that get more difficult as students work through the packet. After doing all 36 problems, students should be more comfortable doing these problems and have a clear understanding of how to solve them.

Sample Problem(s): 

 Solve for x.  

Simple: $\sqrt{2}=3$

Advanced: $2\sqrt{2}=-3$ 


Practice problems require knowledge of radicals (square roots) and exponents.
