Answer:

There are no solutions to this equation

Explanation:

By convention
#color(white)("XXXX")##sqrt("anything") >= 0#

Therefore for any value of #x#
#color(white)("XXXX")##sqrt(-2x)+64#
#color(white)("XXXX")##color(white)("XXXX")##color(white)("XXXX")##>= 64#
#color(white)("XXXX")##color(white)("XXXX")##color(white)("XXXX")##!= 6#
