What is the value of \(2 \times \sqrt[5]{34}\) approximated to the nearest integer?

A. 13

B. 8

C. 5

D. 4

E. 3

\(\sqrt[5]{32} = 2\)

\(\sqrt[5]{243} = 3\)

Since 34 is wayyyyyyyy closer to 32 than it is to 243, we can conclude that \(\sqrt[5]{34}\) is just a teeny bit bigger than 2

So, \(2 \times \sqrt[5]{34} =\)(2)(a number a teeny bit bigger than 2)

= a number a teeny bit bigger than 4

Answer: D

Cheers,

Brent
