    9x2? are you working with polynomials or did you just type it wrong?

    there are no real solutions... x2 = -16/9 \[x = \pm {4 \over 3} i\]

    this doesn't work because 34 doesn't equal 0 so there are no solutions

    she means: \[9x^2 + 16 = 0\]

    \[9x^2 + 16 = 0 \rightarrow 9x^2 = -16\] \[x^2 = {-16 \over 9}\] \[x = \pm \sqrt{-16 \over9} \rightarrow x = \pm {4 \over 3} \times \sqrt{-1} = \pm {4 \over 3}i\]
