Hello, pashah!

Solve each equation and check for extraneous solutions.

Square: .

Then: .

But when we check, we get: . . . . an "imaginary" number.

Therefore, this equation hasnosolutions.

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 hasnosolutions.
