    Q.9: If log2 4 * log4 8 * log8 16 * ……………nth term = 49, what is the value of n?
    1. 49
    2. 48
    3. 34
    4. 24

 

  • Correct Answer
    Choice B. 48

Detailed Solution

First, the nth term of L.H.S need to be defined by observing the pattern :-
It is log(2n) 2.2n
Given,
log2 4 * log4 8 * log8 16 * ……………log(2n) 2.2n = 49
Whenever solving a logarithm equation, generally one should approach towards making the base same.
Making the base 2:-
log2 4 * * * .......
log(2n) 2.2n = 49
log(2n) 2 + log(2n) 2n = 49
1 + n = 49
n = 48.
Correct Answer is (B). 48

Correct Answer: 48
