Tough question. Solve for n explicitly. 100*n^4 = (2^n) / 10^6?

I know it's approximately n = 50 by trial and error. Is there a way to solve for n explicitly? I assume it requires logbase2

    An explicit solution involves the Lambert W function. Approximate real solutions are:

    n = -0.0099827

    n = 0.0100174

    n = 49.0388361
