Was not able to read the Q. Does it states:

"If n is a non-negative integer such that 6^n is a divisor of 5,178,791, what is the value of n^6-6^n?"

If so, than it's not hard one.

6^n is a divisor of 5,178,791 --> as far as n is non-negative integer (given) the only value of n is 0 (5,178,791 is not even, thus it can not be divided by 6 in any power but 0)

n=0
0^6-6^0=-1
