An algorithm with a O(n^n^n^n)?

2^2^2^2 = 65536

Do you have any idea what 3^3^3^3 is?

Yes, I do. But imagine an algorithm of complexity O(G_n) where G_n is the Graham's number except that it uses n instead of 3 everywhere.

That is the number of digits. That is the same as the exponent of the answer. But it is not the mantissa of the answer.

That is the point! Wolfram can not do 3^3^3^3. But we can still get an answer!

Yes and any other branch of math! In a school problem you can only use the material you just learned. Usually just the last chapter of the textbook covered. In the real world there are no bounds! Any technique that gets an answer is good.
