bryansuriel 3 years ago 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

1. bryansuriel

thats all it gives

2. dpaInc

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

3. beeqay

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

4. bryansuriel

idk what to do..

5. alanli123

Do what dpalnc said.

6. beeqay

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

7. bryansuriel

whats that?

8. alanli123

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

9. alanli123

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

10. bryansuriel

oh no wonder i was like i cant solve that

11. bryansuriel

thats not two step though or is it?

12. alanli123

13. bryansuriel

is taht a two step equation???

14. alanli123

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

Show the steps to solving the equation and explain in words why your work proves that there are NO SOLUTIONS.

16. alanli123

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.
