    You have a custom operation ^ and the following equation x ^ y = 2x + y,

    Now what is the value of a in 2 ^ a = a ^ 3

    BTW I also don't know the answer and is a question of some paper.

    x^y = 2x +y

    2^a = a^3

    =======================

    2^a = 2(2)+a
    2^a = 4+a

    =================

    a^3 = 2(a)+3

    ===============

    4+a = 2a+3

    2a-a=4-3

    a=1
