This is possible for 4 integers 2, 4, -2 and -4
as \(2^4\) = 16
\(4^2\)=16
\(2^2\)= 4
and for - from the equation above those negative will converted into + by squaring or by [q]

Hi, I have a discrepancy with the answer and approach to the solution, it is not mentioned that [q] is absolute value of q, generally |q| is taken to be so. Also, in many cases the square brackets are used for greatest or smallest integer above or below a value type of questions, or it could simply mean square brackets. So i believe it is necessary for the symbol to be expressed correctly. Please correct me if I am wrong. :)

You are right. If it's meant to be the absolute value of q, then it should have been written as |q| NOT [q]. Edited.

Asked: For how many integers, denoted by "q", is \(2^{|q|} =q^2\)?

For q = 2, -2
\(2^{2} =2^2\)
For q = 4, -4
\(2^{4} =4^2\)
