        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.

          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.
