Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3x(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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1One 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.
