Explanatory Answer

To start with, we have, \\frac{2×4×8×16}{(log_{2}4)^{2}(log_{4}8)^{3}(log_{8}16)^{4}})
Let's work on the denominator alone,
log24 = 2
log48 = \\frac{log8}{log4}) = \\frac{log_{2}8}{log_{2}4}) = \\frac{3}{2})
log816 = \\frac{log16}{log8}) = \\frac{log_{2}16}{log_{2}8}) = \\frac{4}{3})

So, the denominator becomes, 2 × 2 × \\frac{3}{2}) × \\frac{3}{2}) × \\frac{3}{2}) × \\frac{4}{3}) × \\frac{4}{3}) × \\frac{4}{3}) × \\frac{4}{3})
= 2 × 4 × 4 × \\frac{4}{3})
And hence the fraction becomes, \\frac{2×4×8×16}{2 × 4 × 4 × 4/3})
= \\frac{2 × 4 × 8 × 16 × 3}{2 × 4 × 4 × 4})
= 2 × 4 × 3 = 24


The question is "\\frac{2×4×8×16}{(log_{2}4)^{2}(log_{4}8)^{3}(log_{8}16)^{4}}) equals"

Hence, the answer is, ""
