### Transcript

So nine to the 1/3 is the same as the cube root of 9...

...9 to the 1/4 is the 4th root of 9. Whatever that is.

So 9 to the half is the square root of nine, which is "3 times 3 equals 9" inside the

square root sign thingie here... so just 3. Like that.

So we have 3 plus the square root of 4, which is 2 times 2 inside the square root symbol,

which is... 2.

So the answer is 3 plus 2. As long as we're not living in George Orwell's negative utopia...

Big Brother says something else...then 3 + 2 is 5...

...and our answer is C.

As in, "Creamer."
