Problem 1858. User defined nextpow function

Created by Swapnali Gujar

Create a function which will take 2 arguments as n and x, and return y, where, n^y >= abs(x). [ Similar to builtin "nextpow2" function]

e.g. nextpow(3, 20) will return 3 since 3^3 =27 > 20

Another example: nextpow(4, 16) will return 2, since 4^2 = 16

nextpow(2, 21) will return 5, since 2^5 = 32 > 21
