Just to make this clear, if you were reading this aloud, it would sound like this:

if 2 to the power of 16 to the power of x equals 16 to the power of 2 to the power of x.

So basically, the x would not be the same size as the 2 or 16, but really tiny and above the 2 and 16.

Thank you!

**Damon**, Friday, March 6, 2009 at 4:42pm(2^16)^x = (16^2)^x

16^2^x = [(2^4)^2]^x

and

a^b^c = a^(bc)

so

2^16 x = 2^8x

16 x log 2 = 8 x log 2

16 x = 8 x ?

not unless x = 0
