Let's list a few terms and

look for a patternterm

1 = 64 = 2^8

term

2 = (2^8)(2^2)

term

3 = (2^8)(2^2)(2^3)

term

4 = (2^8)(2^2)(2^3)(2^4)

.

.

.

term

8 =

(2^8)(2^2)(2^3)(2^4)(2^5)(2^6)(2^7)(2^8).

.

.

term

11 =

(2^8)(2^2)(2^3)(2^4)(2^5)(2^6)(2^7)(2^8)(2^9)(2^10)(2^11)

So, term11/term8 =

(2^8)(2^2)(2^3)(2^4)(2^5)(2^6)(2^7)(2^8)(2^9)(2^10)(2^11)

/(2^8)(2^2)(2^3)(2^4)(2^5)(2^6)(2^7)(2^8)= (2^9)(2^10)(2^11)

= 2^30

Answer: E

Cheers,
