We have to find the greatest integer which satisfies $$3^{20}$$ $$> 32^x$$

$$\Rightarrow$$ $$3^{20}$$ $$> 2^{5x}$$

$$\Rightarrow$$ $$\sqrt[5]{3^{20}}$$ $$> \sqrt[5]{2^{5x}}$$

$$\Rightarrow$$ $$3^4$$ $$> 2^x$$

$$\Rightarrow$$ $$81$$ $$> 2^x$$

$$81$$ $$> 64$$

$$\Rightarrow$$ $$x = 6$$

_Hint: _ $$32 = 2^5$$.

step 1 :: 20 log3 > x log 32. step 2 :: 20*0.477 > x 1.505. step 3 :: 6.33 > x. therefore x = 6.
