Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

t^4 + 10t^2 + 4 = 2t^2 - 3

t^4+10t^2-2t^2+7=0

t^4+8t^2+7=0

Factorise

(t^2+1)(t^2+7)=0

therefore t^2+1=0

t^2=-1

taking square root of both sides it means that t has no value as -1 has no square root

and

 t^2+7=0

t^2=-7

taking square root of both sides it means that t has no value as -7 has no square root

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
