Homework Help: Log: is this true?

  1. Oct 3, 2008 #1
    Hello:

    I seem to recall a vague truth that a^(log n) = n ^ (log a)? Can someone verify?

    Thanks.

    Yes, they are. Take the logarithm of both sides and see for yourself. Of course, this is all assuming that a and n take on appropriate values.
