When there are two radical expressions in an equation, we isolate one radical expression then square both sides of the equation. Depending on whether there is a term added to the other radical expression, it will be expanded such that we isolate again and solve for the variable of the equation.

The process is different from solving an equation with only one radical expression as there are more steps involved when there are two radical expressions.
