The parabola doesn't ever touch the x-axis, so it has no solutions.

Remember as a rule of thumb:

There are the same number of solutions as there are points where the parabola touches the x-axis.

This number will always be either 0, 1, or 2.

In this case, it is 0, since the parabola never touches the x-axis.

Hope this helps!
