Which is greater, 2^1100 or 3^700?

Bonus: Approximately how many times greater is it (to the nearest 10)?

Both of these are too large to do on a calculator and will force the calculator into overflow. So we have to come up with another way to compare them rather than getting both actual values.

We can write them as:

(2^11)^100 and (3^7)^100 and just compare the

2^11 vs 3^7

2048 vs 2187

so

**3^700**is the winner!!Here is a link to the answer to the bonus
