((1.0001)^200)^200 = ((1.0001)^100)^400 = ((1.01)^400) = (2.7)^4 = between 50 and 60
ans 53
C

Please help with approximation and suggest something to read for the same.

((1.0001)^200)^200
((1.0001)^100 * (1.0001)^100)^200

(1.01*1.01)^200

(1.01)^400

2.7^4= 53 (approx)

Hi Experts,
I was wondering could you please go over my solution and see where I made a mistake as I got a completely different answer from the given options.

(1.0001^200)^200
((1.001^100)*(1.001^100))^200
((1.01)(1.01))^200
(1.01^100)*(1.01^100)
2.7*2.7=7.29

Thank you!

Thank you!


You are wrong in this ..
(1.01)(1.01))^200
(1.01^100)*(1.01^100)

It will be 1.01^200*1.01^200

So answer will be 7.29^2

((1.0001)^200)^200 = (1.0001)^40000 = (1.01)^400 = (2.7)^4 = (7.29)^2 = approx. greater than and closest to 7^2 i.e. 49.
