# Math Help - b^(log(base b)^x^2)?

1. ## b^(log(base b)^x^2)?

what would the answer be? my teacher was embarrassed because he wasn't sure if the answer would be 2 or x^2.

i think it's x^2 because of the two bs.

2. Is this a correct reading of the problem?
$\Large b^{\log _b \left( {x^2 } \right)}$

3. yes.
