Find how many digits the base ten number 11^8^5 has when written in base eleven. 

 

I have an answer but I'm not sure if it's right because the question is kind of confusing to me.

11^(8^5) in base 11 ==1.1062AA481 E+33957

 

It has: 33,957 + 1 ==33, 958 digits in base 11

It will have 8^5 zeros plus a 1 at the front

 

that is 32768+1 = 32769 digits

 

Think about it 

(the numbers on the left are in base 10 and the numbers on the right are in the given base)

 

10^4 = 10000 base 10

5^2 = 100 base 5

7^6 = 1000000 base 7

3^2 = 100 base 3
