You've written the statement:

2

^{x}= 528In order to solve a problem that has a variable in the exponent, you need to use logarithms. If you take the log

_{2}of both sides, you getlog

_{2}2^{x}= log_{2}528x log

_{2}2 = log_{2}528x = (ln 528)/(ln 2)

Alternatively, you could take the ln (base e) or log (base 10) at the beginning, and you'll get the same answer.
