Exercises 25 and 26 refer to properties 11.4.9 and 11.4.10. To solve them, think big!
26. Find a real number such that .
Find a real number x > 1 such that
We need to find a real number x > 1 such that
We will try to find such a real number by calculating for some increasingly large values of x.
Since we have been given , we will obtain integer results if x is a power of 2 and if the power is also a multiple of 10 (which will make the calculations easier).
