- The following problem is from both the 2014 AMC 12A #22 and 2014 AMC 10A #25, so both problems redirect to this page.
Problem
The number is between and . How many pairs of integers are there such that and
Solution
Between any two consecutive powers of there are either or powers of (because ). Consider the intervals . We want the number of intervals with powers of .
From the given that , we know that these intervals together have powers of . Let of them have powers of and of them have powers of . Thus we have the system from which we get , so the answer is .
