Homework Help: Calculus

Posted by Jon on Sunday, October 3, 2010 at 7:45pm.

In increasing order, rank:
3^ln 2, 2^3, 2^ln 3

*do not use a calculator, and explain your choices

Obviously, 2^3=8
So, instinctively, I entered the other values into my calculator just to rank the quantities using decimal places. However, in my calculator, 3^ln 2 and 2^ln 3 both yield: 2.1414886064.
So, can someone explain this problem to me please!
