From Emily: I have a question about Extraneous Solutions, Because I was recently researching to figure out
on how to determine that a solution is extraneous and many of the answers talked about how if a answer is negative
that it should always be extraneous but now I found out that positive solutions can also be considered as extraneous solutions
so that is why I am really confused Extraneous Solution's.
I would really appreciate it if you could clearly explain to me how to determine an extraneous solution from a normal solution.
Thanks,
Emily Answered by Chris Fisher.
