    i'm assuming no REAL solutions.... \[\large \sqrt{x}=-2 \]

    Ok, how about you write up a quadratic equation with no real solutions.

    \[10x^2-x+20\] Notice using the quadratic equation gives a negative square root value? Which is what @dpaInc just showed you.

    Bryan, do this one then. x-1 = x + 1

    It results in - 1 = 1 which is not true and thus no solutions.

    3(2x + 5) = 2(3x + 4) Ok, this is a two step equation.

    3(2x+5) = 2(3x+4) 6x + 15 = 6x + 8 15 = 8 This proves there are no solutions because the end result is 15 = 8, which is clearly not true. For example, this is saying 15 cats are equal to 8 cats -- obviously a false statement.
