(2)^n > 10^15

\divide the powers by n

2 > 10^(15/n)

if n = 30

2 < 10^(15/30)
2 < sqrt(10)
which is incorrect.

if n = 45

2 < 10^(15/45)
2 < cuberoot(10)
which is incorrect.

if n = 60

2 > 10^(15/60)
2 > (10)^(1/4).

therefore least value of n = 60.

2^10 >10^3
Now write
(2^10)^5 > (10^3)^5

The answer should be 50. 45 makes it less, so choose 60.
