Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i dont have a very nice method but i guess this will help you let's say \[x= 2 ^{\sqrt2}\] take log on both the sides \[\log x = \sqrt {2}\log2\] find the value of right side and finally \[X= e ^{\sqrt2 \log 2}\] and i am sure that would be irrational
