    Assuming \log a=\log_{10}a , and assuming you made a typo and meant \log\log x in the first exer., then

    \log\log x=3\Longrightarrow 10^3=\log x \Longrightarrow 10^{10^3}=x

    x^{\log_2x}=32x^4\Longrightarrow \log_2\left(x^{\log_2x}\right)=\log_2\left(32x^4\r  ight)\Longrightarrow \log_xx\cdot\log_2x=5+4\log_2x ...you finish the argument.

    Of course, you must know VERY WELL the definition and properties of logarithms to prove the above.
