We notice that as the exponent of 2 approaches $\sqrt 3$, the value of the expression gets closer to $2^{\sqrt 3}$.
$2^{1.7}=3.24901$ $2^{1.732}=3.32188$ $2^{1.73205}=3.322$ $2^{1.7320508}=3.322$ We notice that as the exponent of 2 approaches $\sqrt 3$, the value of the expression gets closer to $2^{\sqrt 3}$.
