    Okay, well... \[x^2=-169\] That NEGATIVE sign pretty much gives it away.

    x^2 means x*x if you say x is -13 then x*x means -13 * -13 and that is +169 there is *no way* to square a real number and get a negative result some day you will learn about imaginary numbers. But for now, *no way*

    namely, the equation: \[\Large {x^2} = - 169\] has no real solutions
