Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not really clear what this means perhaps you are supposed to solve each for x and see what it the biggest solution?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we know that square root of 16 = 4 so x^2 = 17 would mean that x is close to 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0same idea with the second one 26 is close to 25 sqrt of 25 = 5 so x^2 = 26 means that x is close to 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0actually if \(x^2=26\) then \(x=\pm\sqrt{26}\) but i suppose you are supposed to pick that one anyway

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to compare them I was attempting to make the numbers look friendlier, but yeah that's the more accurate form

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let's rearrange and solve \[\large x^{2}=17 \rightarrow x=\sqrt{17}\]\[\large x^{2}=26 \rightarrow x=\sqrt{26}\]\[\large x^{3}=64 \rightarrow x=\sqrt[3]{64}\]\[\large x^{3}=27 \rightarrow x=\sqrt[3]{27}\]
