## Help with Inequality with Exponents question

How do you prove the following?

$$7^{\sqrt{5}} > 5^{\sqrt{7}}$$

Without calculators or working out $${\sqrt{5}}$$, $${\sqrt{7}}$$, of course.
 Well, consider both numbers and raise them both to the power of square root of 5. So we have $$7^5 \ and \ 5^{\sqrt{35}}$$ Now, consider the following: $$6 = \sqrt{36} > \sqrt{35}$$ So we can just compare 7^5 and 5^6. I'm sure you can calculate those by hand.
