Given two integer numbers X and Y. find the larger of X^Y and Y^X, or determine if they are equal.
Input : 2 3 Output : 3^2 We know 3^2 = 9 and 2^3 = 8. Input : 2 4 Output : Equal
A simple solution is calculate x^y by looping for y times, but if the values of x and y is too large it will cause overflow.
To solve the overflow problem, we can simplify the equation by taking log.
log(x^y) = y* log(x)
Now, this equation will not cause overflow and we can compare two values directly.
