For the question to be positive: v^2, m^3 and t^-4 = +ve

v^2 and t^-4 are always positive.

Statement 1:
m> v^2

So m positive. SUFF

Statement 2:

m> t^ -4

So, m positive. SUFF

1. m > v^2
2. m> t^-4

i WANT TO CLARIFY IS THE STEM

V RAISED TO THE POWER OF 2M RAISED TO THE POWER OF 3T RAISED TO THE POWER OF -4

Assuming I am reading the question right, isn't v^2m^3t^-4 = v^ (-24mt)
So, don't we need to prove that 24mt itself is negative, so that -24mt will be positive.

1 shows that m > 0
2 also shows that m > 0.

But how do we know whether t <0 or >0?

I) v^2 is +ve, therefore if m > v^2 then m is +ve, t^-4 +ve so:
+ve * +ve * +ve > 0

II) t^-4 +ve therefore m +ve
+ve * +ve * +ve > 0
