 Polynomials-and-rational-expressions/375540: Without performing and mathematical calculations explain why there cannot be any solutions to the equation. √2x^2-4 + 2√3-4x +1= -61 solutions Answer 267267 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2010-11-24 11:08:33 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! . . . The assumption here is that only the positive square root for each function will be used. The square root functions only provide non-negative results. Adding two non-negative results to 1 will never provide a negative sum.
