Arrange the ff from greatest to least:

[latex]2^{110}, 3^{75}, 5^{49}[/latex]



How could I use a modular method to be able to answer that one?

I really need it. Hope you could help me.

Are you able to use the calculator to do the question?

If yes , use logarithm .

No. We're not allowed. My teacher told me to use a modular reduction and comparison. Can you teach me how?
