Modulo in solving numbers raised to high exponents

  1. Modular method in solving numbers raised to high exponents

    Arrange the ff from greatest to least:

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



    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 .

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