Hello, pashah!
Solve each equation and check for extraneous solutions.
Square: .
Then: .
But when we check, we get: . . . . an "imaginary" number.
Therefore, this equation has no solutions.
Square: .
Multiply by 4: .
Now use the Quadratic Formula (and check your answers).
We have: .
Multiply by the LCD:
. .
We have: .
Then: .
But when we check, it starts with: . . . . undefined!
Therefore, this equation has no solutions.
