is this log to the base 10?

$\log 3^{3^{11}} = 3^{11} \log 3$

if you can't use a calculator, you'd have to use a log table or something to find $\log_{10}3$

The problem might be $\log_3 3^{11}$.

In which case, no calculator would be necessary. The 11 can come out in front alone, making $11\times\log_3 3 = 11\times1 = 11$.

indeed. after reviewing his/her posts, i see that soly_sol has a hard time posting questions in an understandable manner. the same question was posted as log3311 in another post. but your interpretation makes more sense, i was merely trying to get a response from the poster

Wow I'd be impressed if anyone could do log3311 in his head. All I know is that it's three-point-something. . .
