If x > (y^2) > (z^4), which of the following statements could be true?

I. x > y > z
II. z > y > x
III. x > z > y

i know i could just plug numbers in and solve the problem, but is there a quicker way of doing this problem?

i don't think there is a formula that can quicken he process, but if you plug numbers in it will work just fine (don't forget about negative numbers)

all are possible.

I. if x = 5, y = 4, z = 1
II. if x = .5, y = .6, z = .7
III. if x = 30, y = -5, z = -2
