# Problem #1155

 1155 Two distinct numbers $a$ and $b$ are chosen randomly from the set $\{ 2, 2^2, 2^3, \ldots, 2^{25} \}$. What is the probability that $\log_{a} b$ is an integer? $\mathrm {(A) } \frac{2}{25} \qquad \mathrm {(B) } \frac{31}{300} \qquad \mathrm {(C) } \frac{13}{100} \qquad \mathrm {(D) } \frac{7}{50} \qquad \mathrm {(E) } \frac{1}{2}$ This problem is copyrighted by the American Mathematics Competitions.
