How do you solve a fraction?

X^2/3=1/16

Thanks

**MathGuru**, Wednesday, March 27, 2013 at 7:33pmNext step:

x^2 = 3/16

Now take the square root of both sides (whatever operation you do to one side of an equation you must do to the other side as well):

√x^2 = √(3/16)

There are two possible solutions:

x = - √3/4, √3/4

Substitute both values for x in the original equation to see if it checks out. It always helps to check your work.

I hope this helps.
