Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Assuming I interpret your notation correctly,\[\log{x^{\frac{1}{64}}}=\frac{3}{2}\rightarrow \frac{1}{64}\log{x}=\frac{3}{2}\]So\[\log{x}=64 \times \frac{3}{2}=96\]Hence,\[x=e^{96}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is log base 10 not log base e or natural log so the answer should be: \[x=10^{96}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah it does unless you change the base for x. log and ln are not equivalent. put it in a TI89 or some math program

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, it's a matter of definition. Log is technically the notation for natural logarithm in general, with ln reserved for use as the natural logarithm of the magnitude of a complex number. It's semantics. Mathematicians use log.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in maths log means base 10 not e unless it is mentioned.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Whatever. I have a degree + postgrad. in the subject. I'm not arguing about it anymore. Mathematicians use log for ln unless the base is made explicit.
