From Statement 1: n can be 1 or 16
From Statement 2: n can be any number but 1
Both put together n can be 16

Can you explain why from statement 1 n can be 16?

Jinino, From statement 1 we get two possible values for n.
If we assume n is 1: From statement 1 we get, 1^4 => 1 which is less than 25 and
If we assume n is 2: From statement 2 we get, 2^4 => 16 which is still less than 25
But if we assume n is 3: 3^4 would not be less than 25

Hence from statement 1 we get two values for n which are 1 & 2.

My earlier post should have read - From Statement 1: n can be 1 or 2. I am sorry if this led to your confusion.
