Solve for n 256=1^(n-1)

Math
256=1n-1
Rewrite the equation as 1n-1=256.
1n-1=256
Take the natural logarithm of both sides of the equation to remove the variable from the exponent.
ln(1n-1)=ln(256)
Expand the left side.
Tap for more steps…
Expand ln(1n-1) by moving n-1 outside the logarithm.
(n-1)ln(1)=ln(256)
The natural logarithm of 1 is 0.
(n-1)⋅0=ln(256)
Multiply n-1 by 0.
0=ln(256)
0=ln(256)
Since 0≠log2.71828182(256), there are no solutions.
No solution
