Problem
What is the correct ordering of the three numbers, , , and ?
Solution 1
Use brute force. , , and . Therefore, is the answer.
Solution
Since all of the exponents are multiples of four, we can simplify the problem by taking the fourth root of each number. Evaluating we get , , and . Since , it follows that is the correct answer.
