Q1 [3] Compute (124x134x23x49x13) mod 3 using modular arithmetic. Solution : (124? 134? 23? 49? 13) 3 = (243441016? 4 ) 3 = 243441016 3 (? 4 ) 3 = 243441016 3 ? 12 Q2 [4] What is the last digit of 17^17 ? Solution: 7 1 = 7 7 2 = 49 7 3 = 343 7 4 = 2401 7 5 = 16807 7 6 = 117649 Now, let's take the power and divide by 4: 4? + 1 = 17 𝑖? ? = 4 17 17 = 17 (4.4+1) Knowing that unit place will repeat after 4 circles. Therefore: 17 1 ℎ𝑎? 7 ?𝑎?? ?𝑖?𝑖?, ?𝑎?? ?𝑖?ℎ 17 17 ?𝑖?? ℎ𝑎?? ?𝑎?? ?𝑖?𝑖? ?? 7 Hence, the answer is 7 as the last digit for 17 17 .

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
