whenever i take too quick decision, i fall on the trap. therefore i slipped on this one. i thought x = 3n + 2 has a pattern but when x = 4n + 2, then only it would have a pattern.

agree with you guys.
thanks for good job.

Did you work your way up to calculating (the units digit of) x=14? If not, how did you figure out that x=14 will yield a 0? Thanks.
