In a radical equation if the negative symbol is in front of the radical should I use 1 to factor out the negative power? And if so do I factor across the = doing BOTH sides? Or just the side the radical is on?
Thanks anyone, I've been out of school for 12 years so it is a bit of a struggle.

Lee,
Thanks anyway, I found the answer, the 1 is to be multiplied across ALL factors including the numbers on the other side of the =.
See ya
