Answer: Option D

Explanation:

4^{50} = (2^{2})^{50} = 2^{100} => 16^{25} = (2^{4})^{25} = 2^{100}

Hence, 4^{50}, 2^{100} and 164^{25} are all equal.

### Answer & Explanation

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

5 > 4 and 1/2 > 1/4

5^{1/2} > 4^{1/4}

4^{1/4} cannot be the greatest. Hence 3^{1/4} also cannot be the greatest.

3^{7/10} = (3^{7})^{1/10} = (2187)^{1/10}

5^{1/2} = 5^{5/10} = (5^{5})^{1/10} = (3125)^{1/10}

6^{1/5} = 6^{2/10} = (6^{2})^{1/10} = (36)^{1/10}

As (3125)^{1/10} > (2187)^{1/10} > (36)^{1/10} , 5^{1/2} is the greatest.
