I couldn't understand the question -

by ^3sqrt(4) - you mean cube root of 4?

Thanks.

I didn't know how to type it properly.

it's the cubed root of sqr rt of 4 and the 4th root of sqrt of 4

so it's square root of 4 plus the raised power 3 in front of the sq. rt of 4 plus the raised power 4 in front of the sq. rt of 4.

thanks

E greater than 4...

2+1.41+~1=~4.4

2 + sqrt(2) + cube root(2) = 2 + 1.41 + sqrt(1.41) = 2+1.41 + 1.xxx

so more than 4

E.

Answer should be E as ^3sqrt(4) + ^4sqrt(4) are both greater than 1

If \(M=\sqrt{4}+\sqrt[3]{4}+\sqrt[4]{4}\), then the value of M is:

A. Less than 3
B. Equal to 3
C. Between 3 and 4
D. Equal to 4
E. Greater than 4

Here is a little trick: any positive integer root from a number more than 1 will be more than 1.

For instance: \(\sqrt[1000]{2}>1\).

Hence \(\sqrt[3]{4}>1\) and \(\sqrt[4]{4}>1\) --> \(M=\sqrt{4}+\sqrt[3]{4}+\sqrt[4]{4}=2+(number \ more \ then \ 1)+(number \ more \ then \ 1)>4\)

Answer: E.
