# Solve the Following Question and Mark the Best Possible Option. How Many Solutions to the Equation 2x + X2 = 2 - 1/2x Exist? - Mathematics

MCQ

Solve the following question and mark the best possible option.
How many solutions to the equation 2x + x2 = 2 - 1/2x exist?

#### Options

• 0

• 1

• 2

• More than two

#### Solution

We have 2x + x2 = 2 - 1/(2^x)

⇒ 2 - x2 = 2x + 1/(2^x) ≥ 2  ...[For nonnegative real numbers AM≥GM]

⇒ 2 – x2 ≥ 2 ⇒ x2 ≤ 0

⇒ x = 0 is the only solution to the given equation. Hence this has only one solution.
