Solve the equation.

How do you solve a fraction?
X^2/3=1/16

Thanks

  • college algebra -

    Next 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.
