use common logarithms and calculator to evaluate to 4 decimal place.
log24^301

301 log 24 =415.4436

Log 24^301 = 301 Log 24
Log 24 = Log 24/ Log 10 (Change of Base Theorem)
so just multiply Log 24/ Log 10 by 301. 
301log24=301log(8*3)=301(log8+log3)=
301(3log2 + log3) log2 and log3 I memorized when I was in the seventh grade, .3010, and .4771
So you can do this now on your mom's checkbook calculator. 
I was puzzled by the notation too Patryk.
