Homework Help: Tough Log Problem

  1. Mar 4, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    If log[tex]_{}2n[/tex](1944) = log[tex]_{}n[/tex](486[tex]\sqrt{}2[/tex]) then evaluate n^6

    P.S the 2n and n are subscripts.
    2. Relevant equations

    log base b(a) = c is the same as a^c = b

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I tried converting log base 2n to log base n but I ended up nowhere.

    Try converting them to either base 10 or to the base of e.
