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."
