Let [t] denote the greatest integer


Let $[t]$ denote the greatest integer $\leq t$. Then the equation in $x,[x]^{2}+2[x+2]-7=0$ has:

  1. (1) exactly two solutions

  2. (2) exactly four integral solutions

  3. (3) no integral solution

  4. (4) infinitely many solutions

Correct Option: , 4


The given equation




$\Rightarrow([x]+3)([x]-1)=0 \Rightarrow[x]=1$ or $-3$

$\Rightarrow x \in[-3,-2) \cup[1,2)$

$\therefore$ The equation has infinitely many solutions.
