you're familiar that letters represent numbers in algebra, yes?

3. hawkfalcon

Yes...

4. lgbasallote

well what you saw here is a representation of an "unknown" operator

5. hawkfalcon

Oh, just another variable?:O

6. lgbasallote

and i assume you are given a second equation?

7. hawkfalcon

Nope, thats it.

8. lgbasallote

well you cant necessarily call it a variable...

9. lgbasallote

well what are you supposed to find in \[\huge 5 \diamond 2^{n-1} = 20480\]

10. hawkfalcon

n

11. lgbasallote

could you post the exact question?

12. hawkfalcon

"Solve for n"

13. hawkfalcon

And that equation at the top :P

i'd still want to see the *exact* question...usually even if you give the major details, you miss a diamond ring under the closet

15. hawkfalcon

Maybe a typo?:P
