7. The equation of a curve is xy=10 and the equation of a line l is 2x+y=q, where q is a number. (i) Find the set of values of q for which l does not intersect the curve. I am on the right track I think but I don't know how to get the answer. I will upload a picture of my working out but basically I got q 2 years ago

and the actual answer is $-\sqrt{80}<q<\sqrt{80}$
