    hmmmm.....

    \log_4T=2+\log_2v,

    T=4^{2+\log_2v}

    Hello, pickslides!

    I just noticed that your answer can be simplified beyond all recognition . . .


    T\:=\:4^{2+\log_2v}

    T \;=\;4^2\cdot 4^{\log_2v} \;=\;16\cdot(2^2)^{\log_2v} \;=\;16\cdot2^{2\log_2v} \;=\;16\cdot2^{\log_2(v^2)} \;=\;16v^2



    Yeah, you're right . . . I've got far too much time on my hands.

    Hello,

    Here is another way :

    We know that \log_a b=\frac{\ln b}{\ln a}
    From here, it's easy to see that \log_2 v=2 \log_4(v^2)

    And we know that 2=\log_4 4^2=\log_4 16, so that 2+\log_2 v=\log_4 (16v^2)

    ---> \log_4 T=\log_4 (16v^2)\Rightarrow T=16v^2
