5^n > 10,000,

10,000 = 5^4*2^4

so n has to be >5

IMO C 6

If 5^n > 10,000, and n is an integer, the smallest possible value of n is

10,000= (2*5)^4

5^4= 625
5^5= 3125
5^6= 15515

If $$5^n > 10,000$$, and n is an integer, the smallest possible value of n is

$$10,000 = 5^4*2^4$$
$$2^4 = 16 >5 But 16 < 25 i.e., 5^2$$
implies 5^4 * 5^2 i.e., $$5* 5^4 < 16 * 5^4 < 25* 5^4$$

minimum value of n is 6
Option C is correct
