Can a rational equation have more than one solution? no solution? Give

specific examples to support your response.

It is always important to check your answers.

For example you have the following problem:

If you have x quarters, your mom has 25 quarters. The amount of quarters you have raised to the power of 2 is equal to the amount of quarters your mom has. How many quarters do you have?

the equation is x^2=25. Well x is = to +5 & -5, because 5*5=25 & -5*-5=25.

But you can not have -5 quarters. So you need to check your solutions to make sure they make sense.
