Solve for a.

\sqrt(p+a+r=k)

I assume you mean \(\sqrt{p+a+r}=k\).

 

Whenever there is a square root symbol, you want to square the equation. 

\((\sqrt{p+a+r})^2=k^2\)

This becomes \(p+a+r=k^2\), because the square root symbol is lifted.

Now we can add and subtract values on each side of the equation to find a. I think you can do that.

 

You are very welcome!
