I think you mean

log3(81)^4

4 log3(81)

find log3(81) first

3^(log 3(81)) = 81

but 81 = 9*9 = 3^4

so log3(81) = 4

so we have

4 * 4 = 16

I meant it the way it is written. The book answer is 256. In excel, it confirms that the answer is 256.

(log_{3} 81)^4 , ((log_{3} 81)=4 by definition)

= (4)^4

= 256

Hi, I have the same problem, but could you show the solutions in terms of "Properties of Logarithms"

Thanks,
