Create your own two-step equation with NO SOLUTION as the solution. Show the steps to solving the equation and explain in words why your work proves that there are NO SOLUTIONS

    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.
