 Question from Sashi: 4444 to power of 4444=? Please share the result with simplification.

Hi Sashi,

The expression

$4444^{4444}$

is to large for any normal calculator. I would use logarithms.

Let

$y = 4444^{4444}$

and take the common logarithm of both sides to get

$\log(y) = \log\left(4444^{4444}\right) = 4444 \times \log(4444).$

See if you can complete the problem from here.

As a check of your answer go to WolframAlpha and type 4444^4444 into the computation window.

Write back if you need more assistance.
