Solve the equation e^2x + 4e^x + 4 = 0

### 1 Answer | Add Yours

The equation ` e^(2x) + 4*e^x + 4 = 0` has to be solved.

let `e^x = y`

`e^(2x) + 4*e^x + 4 = 0`

=> `y^2 + 4y + 4 = 0`

=> `(y + 2)^2 = 0`

=> y = -2

=> `e^x = -2`

But `e^x` cannot be negative for any value of x.

**The equation `e^(2x) + 4*e^x + 4 = 0` has no solution.**
