Hi all. As the question suggests, there is nothing much I need to explain. It's simple: what is xn=y, if x and n are given? Since this is an algebraic equation, it becomes x=n√y. Like for example, 3n=9. With a little bit of common sense, we can see that n is 2, but what about larger numbers? Please try to keep your method of solving this equation simple, given my inability to understand complicated stuff like logs, antilogs, etc. If anyone wants to know why I want this, it's because I've been cracking my head on it for weeks. Just like that. P.S. Please don't use logs. Because, if you look at it carefully, you shall see that this equation itself is a logarithm. x is the base, n the unknown log of y, and y the number. Better still, tell me how logs can be calculated easily on hand. The same thing, of course.
