n^2+n-1 has no divisors ending with 3 or 7 2005-09-08
From Arne:
at least it seems like for any integers n and k,
10k+3 and 10k+7 do not divide nē+n-1
I tested this for every n from 0 to 3200 (which means same for the numbers from -3201 to -1)
could this be true, or is it just coincidence, or am I just totally wrong?

The last digit of a large exponent 2004-10-20

How can one determine the last digit of a large exponent by hand. I have seen several examples of how to do this by breaking it up into smaller exponents, but is there a formula or some common things to look for?

The last digit of 2^28 2004-09-25
From A student:
I am currently enrolled in a math reasoning class and a math question I have to answer is determine the units digit in 3 28power. When I set up a table and keep cubing the numbers, I find a pattern with the last digits of the numbers that follow 1,3,9,7. My calculator gets to about the 19th power, and then I get an error. If I continued the pattern, would the units digit then be the last digit of 3 28th power, which would be a 7? Please let me know if I am solving this correctly and what a unit's digit actually is.
