#### Answer:

No solutions.

#### Explanation:

Our goal is to isolate

We see that the equation has no solutions because the radical operator over

#### Answer:

The answer is no solution.

#### Explanation:

Your goal here is to isolate the variable.

First, start by subtracting 2 from both sides, as such:

Then subtract 9 from both sides:

Now square both sides:

Then subtract 1 from both sides:

Finally, divided both sides by 2:

Plug the answer into the original equation to check if it is correct:

When plugged in, we can see that

#### Answer:

No Real Solution

#### Explanation:

Begin by subtracting

Square both sides to eliminate the radical on the left side

Subtract

Divide both side by

However if we verify this by substituting

#### Answer:

No solution for principle root

The convention is; that unless the question states

#### Explanation:

**However, just for fun; lets investigate the scenario of**

So

The convention states :

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Given:

Write as

Subtract 11 from both sides

Clearly

However

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Square both sides

Which is not the the answer for the given question as written.

The graph clearly shows no solution for
