It took me a little while, but once I got it I see how someone else could get it much quicker than I did. I would have been pushing the 10 minute time limit.

345893456 * log(345893456)

Of course it does, hence the 10 ^ ____ in the answer!

y = x^x (read raised to)

log y = x * log x (log to the base 10)

Now go back to logarithmic basics and think!
