24=j2-(22-4)2

Rewrite the equation as j2-(22-4)2=24.

j2-(22-4)2=24

Subtract 4 from 22.

j2-182=24

Raise 18 to the power of 2.

j2-1⋅324=24

Multiply -1 by 324.

j2-324=24

j2-324=24

Add 324 to both sides of the equation.

j2=24+324

Add 24 and 324.

j2=348

j2=348

To remove the radical on the left side of the equation, square both sides of the equation.

j22=3482

Multiply the exponents in (j1)2.

Apply the power rule and multiply exponents, (am)n=amn.

j1⋅2=3482

Multiply 2 by 1.

j2=3482

j2=3482

Raise 348 to the power of 2.

j2=121104

j2=121104

Take the square root of both sides of the equation to eliminate the exponent on the left side.

j=±121104

The complete solution is the result of both the positive and negative portions of the solution.

Simplify the right side of the equation.

Rewrite 121104 as 3482.

j=±3482

Pull terms out from under the radical, assuming positive real numbers.

j=±348

j=±348

The complete solution is the result of both the positive and negative portions of the solution.

First, use the positive value of the ± to find the first solution.

j=348

Next, use the negative value of the ± to find the second solution.

j=-348

The complete solution is the result of both the positive and negative portions of the solution.

j=348,-348

j=348,-348

j=348,-348

j=348,-348

Solve for j 24 = square root of j^2-(22-4)^2
