This isn't HW and I don't know what form of math it it but it was posed to us by our Cal-I Professor. First, which is larger?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]e^x[/tex] or [tex]x^e[/tex].

Yes, ^x. But he asks how we as individuals would prove this mathematically? All I can see is to plug in a number for x and go, but I don't think this is what he is after. Would I be hot or cold if I took the log of both and came up with xlne & elnx and then did something, anything else? Either way is just substitution and I'm just rambling now.....a tall glass of Port and it's off to bed. :zzz:
