Solve for x: (9/4)log4x=10

this is what I got:

log4 (x^(9/4))=10

4^10 = x^(9/4)

(4^10)^(4/9) = (x^(9/4))^(4/9)

4^(4/10) = x

4^(2/5) =x

am I on the right track?

I think so. I would have to put it into exponential from right? So I would end up with 4^(40/9) = x ?

Your reasoning is excellent.

Just one error in arithmetic.
