1) less than 3
2) 3
3) btween 3 and 4
4) 4
5) greater than 4

2) 21
3) 22
4) 23
5) 32

Is there any page you can recommend for learning how to deal with \(A^x + B^y and a^x * B^y\)? Im clueless regarding these.

Ques 1. If \(M = \sqrt{4} + \sqrt[3]{4} + \sqrt[4]{4}\)
\(M = 2 + \sqrt[\frac{2}{3}]{2} + \sqrt{2}\)
\(M = 2 + \approx 1.5 + \approx 1.4\)

This will be greater than 4

Ques 2. \(5^{21} * 4^{11} = 2 * 10^n\)

\(5^{21} * 2^{22} = 2 * 5^n * 2^n\)

n=21

Ques 3. \(\frac{(8^2)(3^3)(2^4)}{96^2}\)

\(=\frac{8^2*3^3*2^4}{3^2*2^{10}}\)
\(=\frac{2^6*3^3*2^4}{3^2*2^{10}}\)

=3

If \(5^{21} \times 4^{11} = 2 \times 10^n\) what is the value of n?

1) 11
2) 21
3) 22
4) 23
5) 32

Asking n=?
Given

\(5^{21} \times 4^{11} = 2 \times 10^n\)

\(\Rightarrow 5^{21} \times (2^2)^{11} = 2 \times 10^n\)

\(\Rightarrow 5^{21} \times 2^{22} = 2 \times 10^n\)

\(\Rightarrow 5^{21} \times 2^{21} \times 2 = 2 \times 10^n\)

\(\Rightarrow (5 \times 2)^{21} \times 2 = 2 \times 10^n\)

\(\Rightarrow 10^{21} \times 2 = 2 \times 10^n\)

\(\Rightarrow 2 \times 10^{21} = 2 \times 10^n\)

\(\Rightarrow n = 21\)

Philosophus Rex - welcome to GMATClub.

You are an active member and we are happy to see you here. Wanted to show you a few quick shortcuts to post math expressions that are easier to read for everyone, similar to how Nookway responded to your questions.

To create a math formula, most of the time all you have to do is select the expression and hit the M button (located under the B, I, U buttons in the Message Posting screen)

Here is what I did to convert your posts to math-friendly format -mostly just add an M-Tag on both sides of the expression. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

Code:
2. If [m]5^21 * 4^11 = 2 * 10^n[/m]what is the value of n?

Is there any page you can recommend for learning how to deal with [m]A^x + B^y and a^x * B^y[/m]? Im clueless regarding these.

3. [m][fraction]((8^2)(3^3)(2^4))/96^2[/fraction][/m]
