Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 37E

The value of x is none.

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The equation x3+16=0 .

Calculation:

It is provided that the equation x2+9=0 .

Algebraic method;

The method in which isolate x on one side of the equation and solve the value of x .

From the equation x2+9=0 .

Subtract 9 on the both side of the equation,

  x2+99=9x2=9x=9

Solve the value of x from the equation,

  x=±3i

Therefore, the value of x=±3i .

the value of x is not real it is imaginary so there is no real solution.

Thus, there is no real value for x .
