    i need help with area of rectangle with sides x^x^x^x^x^x.......
    and y^y^y^y^y........ where x is 800^(1/800)
    and y is 600^(1/600). leaving answer in whole number not exponent

    If x^x^x... (an infinite "tower") is equal to A, then x^(A)= A so x= A^(1/A).
    Here x= 600^(1/600) so x equals what? You can find y in exactly the same way and then find the area of a rectangle.

    Why was this titled "help with triangle"?
