$\displaystyle 11^n =11n \; \; $ for $\displaystyle n\in N$ Use Number Theory theorems or approximations Post your method (just posting for curiosity); I'll post my idea too. Last edited by skipjack; November 10th, 2017 at 08:27 AM.

It seems somewhat obvious that $n$ = 1.

Rearrange: 11^(n1) = n Still obvious that n=1, as Skip says...
