Re: [2IIM CAT Prep] One doubt in Quants
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.

and your concept i really dis agree with it... all are not equal.On Sat, Nov 22, 2008 at 3:21 PM, murlidhar gone <gmurli_uict@ yahoo.co. in> wrote:All are 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.
