    x(x^6+14x^4+16x^2+30)=0 so x=0 or x^6+14x^4+16x^2+30=0 but if x is a real number x^6+14x^4+16x^2+30>0 so it has one solution: x=0

    One at x = 0. Factor this out and move on. If we define the LHS (with x factored out) as f(x), all coefficient signs are positive. There cannot be a positive Real Solution. No sign change if f(-x), either. We are done. x = 0 is the only Real Solution. marsss identical conclusion is much simpler, but less general.

    i explained the solution of this question so it doesn't need to be general, @tkhunny

    @marss Absolutely agree with your comment. I just wanted the rest along for the ride. Not a complaint or criticism at all. :-)
