    Exponents

    Dear forum members,

    I have a little question.


    How can I know from the following, which one is greatest?



    2^{500}, 3^{350} , 5^{250}


    And please also consider, that this assumes that the student has no knowoledge of logarithms.



    Thank you!

    Hello,

    compare \left(2^{10}\right)^{50}........ \left(3^7\right)^{50}........ \left(5^5\right)^{50} theat means

    compare \left(1024\right)^{50}........ \left(2187\right)^{50}........ \left(3125\right)^{50}
