Power Twins

 The Problem : 

                              42  =  24 

Can you find any other pairs of numbers ( whole or decimal ) which behave like this ?

  

Hint : You could start with a particular first number, say 5, and search for the ‘power partner’ that goes with it. Or you could look for an algebraic connection between such pairs …
