1. Jessie looks at the equation (x – 11)2 + 4 = 0 and states, “This equation has no solutions!” Homework Help ✎

1. How can she know without actually solving?

2. Solve (x – 11)2 + 4 = 0. Are there really no solutions?

What will the equation look like if she subtracts 4 from both sides?

$\textit{x}=11\pm\sqrt{-4}$
