Given a = 2^5,  b = 3^4, c = 4^3, and d = 5^2, let

x = (a + b)(c + d)

y = (a + c)(b + d)

z = (a + d)(b + c)
Rank x, y, z  from greatest to least, and express your answer as an ordered list.

I will start this problem for you.

 

x = \(113 \times 89\)

y = \(96 \times 106\)

z = \(57 \times 145\)

 

Plug these into a calculator, and order them from greatest to least.
