How do I solve this exponent problem? I understand the exponent rules, but I getting 1 but 1 is not the answer! I don't want anyone to solve the problem for me, I want to learn how to solve this type of problem. Thank you!

Solve the equation:

-8=-3-6 (3sqrtx^2)

Thanks again!

  • Pre calculus -

    -3 -6(3*sqrtx^2) = -8.
    1. Isolate the term with the radical by
    adding 3 to both sides.

    2. Divide both sides by -6 and get:
    3x = 5/6.

    3. Divide both sides by 3 and get:
    X = 5/18.
