    I don't know the answer, but I thought I'd format this for you so it's a little easier to read. Hopefully I read it correctly.\[\huge 1035+ \sum_{\color{royalblue}{j}=0}^{45}\; \tan\left(\color{royalblue}{j}\frac{\pi}{180}\right) \quad = \quad 2^x\] \[\huge x= \;\color{green}{?}\]

    how can it be a power of 2 with ur options :) because\[\large \sum_{\color{royalblue}{j}=0}^{45}\; \tan\left(\color{royalblue}{j}\frac{\pi}{180}\right) \quad <45 \ \tan \frac{\pi}{4}=45 \]if im not wrong

    please whosover sees it atleast bookmark it, so that if someone tells the solution or finally i tell the solution, you get to know that the solution really exists and is a genius one! :) note that i couldnt solve it either, but one of my professors did..

    \[N\left[1035+\sum _{j=0}^{45} \text{Tan}\left[j*\frac{\pi }{180}\right],20\right]\] Out[15]= 1055.3586583514306367

    So, it means the term : \(\large \sum_{\color{royalblue}{j}=0}^{45}\; \tan\left(\color{royalblue}{j}\frac{\pi}{180}\right)\) can have one of the four values according to the choices given : 1047541 Or 2096117 Or 4193269 Or 8387573..

    well one thing i can easily make out is 1035 = summ( j) from j=0 to 45 so LHS on whole can be written as summation (j + tan(j pi/180) ) from j=0 to 45 my personal query is that, are you sure its summation there? if thats the product symbol there,,i can easily come to ans.otherwise i doubt,.,

    as @mukushla said |dw:1356354261761:dw| and there is no number which can be expressed as 2^x where x is a integer between 1035 and 1080

    @bdh9800's numerical answer is correct. x = 10.0435176596051999738145449873985899460812855308 to 48 digits. Refer to the attached Mathematica solution.
