Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok, how about you write up a quadratic equation with no real solutions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[10x^2x+20\] Notice using the quadratic equation gives a negative square root value? Which is what @dpaInc just showed you.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.43(2x + 5) = 2(3x + 4) Ok, this is a two step equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.43(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.
