Hi Everyone,

I found this problem in GMAT Test (Pearson's). While I spent my time to manually solve it, I was wondering if there is any easier method to solve it. Any help in this regard is highly appreciated.

--------------

If M = 4$$^1/2$$ + 4$$^1/3$$ + 4$$^1/4$$, then value of M is

- Less than 3
- equal to 3
- between 3 and 4
- equal to 4
- greater than 4

Thanks
Ray

4$$^1/2$$ = 2
4$$^1/3$$ > 1
4$$^1/4$$ > 1

so total > 4.
