C. \(4√3 < 5√2 < 2√13 < 3√6\)

D. \(5√2<4√3<3√6<2√13\)

E. \(2√13 < 3√6 < 4√3 < 5√2\)


We can square each number:

(2√13)^2 = 4 x 13 = 52

(4√3)^2 = 16 x 3 = 48

(5√2)^2 = 25 x 2 = 50

(3√6)^2 = 9 x 6 = 54

Since 48 < 50 < 52 < 54, then we know that 4√3 < 5√2 < 2√13 < 3√6.

Answer: C

Easiest way to solve this is with following method:

2√13=√52
4√3=√48
5√2=√50
3√6=√54

You can compare very easily now... simple :)

Square all the numbers to get

\(2√13\), 52
\(4√3\), 48
\(5√2\) 50
\(3√6\) 54
