There are two variables - m and n.

\((\sqrt{2})^{19}*3^4*4^2*9^m*8^n = 3^n*16^m(\sqrt[4]{64})\)....
\(2^{\frac{19}{2}}*3^4*(2^2)^2*3^{2m}*(2^3)^n = 3^n*2^{4m}(\sqrt[4]{2^6})..........2^{(\frac{19}{2}+4+3n)}*3^{4+2m}=2^{(\frac{6}{4}+4m)}*3^n\)

Equate the powers of 3..
\(4+2m=n\)
Now equate the powers of 2..
\((\frac{19}{2}+4+3n)={\frac{6}{4}+4m}\)

substitute n=4+2m.....
\((\frac{19}{2}+4+3*(4+2m))}={\frac{6}{4}+4m}...........6m-4m=\frac{3}{2}-(\frac{19}{2}+4+12).....2m=\frac{3-51}{2}=-24.....m=-12\)
