• HI this is a CAT 2006 Question The way to take the problem Let us take the L.C.M of (2,3,4,6,12) (2^1/2)^12, (3^1/3)^12 , (4^1/4)^12 ,(6^1/6)^12, (12^1/12)^12

HI this is a CAT 2006 Question

The way to take the problem
Let us take the L.C.M of (2,3,4,6,12)

(2^1/2)^12, (3^1/3)^12 , (4^1/4)^12 ,(6^1/6)^12, (12^1/12)^12

we get
2^6 , 3^4 , 4^3 ,6^2 , 12^1

so from above solution we can conclude 3^1/3  is the largest.

and your concept i really dis agree with it... all are not equal.

any number raised to 1 is the number itself. In that way for given examples i.e 2^1 = 2 hence 2/2=1, likewise for all others i.e. 3^1/3=3/3=1, 6^1/6=6/6=1, 12^1/12=12/12= 1. hence each term is equal to 1.

• Answer can be memorized if you remember the graph of n^1/n. There is only one maximum which occurs at n = e (approx 2.718) So value n closest to this will have

Answer can be memorized if you remember the graph of n^1/n. There is only one maximum which occurs at n = e (approx 2.718) So value n closest to this will have greater value of n^(1/n). So n = 3 is the answer.
