where, the common value of both sides of the equation is positive.

Some Thoughts Oops! Solution by reading the problem. | Comment 2 of 5 |
Oops!  The problem specifies that both sides of the equation must be positive.  In that case, only one of the three values of N that satisfy the equation also satisfy the problem statement.

That's too bad, because the negative solution was my favorite.

By the way, the equation has no imaginary solutions.
