I can't think of a way to approach this other than just listing the various values of n^2 and 2^n until the values diverge.

n^2 : 0, 1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, 49
2^n: 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128

Therefore 2 values (I didn't consider negative integers, because in the end you would be comparing integers against fractions which are obviously not equivalent.

n.ln(2) = 2.ln (n)

ln(2)/2 = ln(n)/n

so n = 2

but that only gives me one answer..., but 4 is also correct... how is it that this non quadratic equation has 2 roots...
