And we have a Winner!

Congratulations to hli for the following answer
 
(I admit that I still try to understand how it really works - but KAlgebra and my old school math book helped a lot. I think it work via the identity between nth-roots and logarithms
 
 
1)       The function approximates log(x) (the logarithm to base 10)
2)      2,414,435 is ln(10)*2^20 (rounded)
3)      726,817 is ln(2)*2^20 (rounded), meaning that you approximate log2(x) (the logarithm to base 2)

Please e-mail me, give me your address, and I will send the kit out to you!
