(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

For the equation 4(times)sqrtx= 2x+k find a value such that k the equation has (a) one solution, (b) two solutions, (c) no solutions

2. Relevant equations

None

3. The attempt at a solution

From original equation, I got to:

sqrtx=(2x+k)/4

x=((2x+k)/4)^2

x= (4x^2+4xk+k^2)/16

simplified to: x= 1/4x^2 +1/4xk + 1/16k^2

Put it into quadratic formula and got the discriminant as: sqrt((1/4k)^2 -(4)(1/4)(k^2/16))

Dont know what to do next... Please help and show all work. Thank You
