9.4247… __ √108

1) <

2) >

3) =


This questions can be answered with a calculator, but I have an impression it is meant to be a mental calculation problem, which can be solved as follows. We know that 10*10=100, in otherwords, &radic; 100 = 10 which is greater than 9.4247. We also know that &radic; 108  is greater than &radic; 100 =10 So we can conclude that &radic; 108 > &radic; 100 = 10  > 9.4247 or simply &radic; 108 > 9.4247 by the transitive property of logical propositions.
