We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:

Your approach is good. 1,1,1,1,1 2,4,8,6,2 3,9,7,1,3 4,6,4,6,4 5,5,5,5,5 6,6,6,6,6 7,9,3,1,7 8,4,2,6,8 9,1,9,1,9 0,0,0,0,0

You can also use that: 1,5,6,0 is repeated with every 1st power (You can ignore power) 4,9 is repeated with every 2nd power (odd|even power = 1st|2nd power)

As I understand it, whenever there is a product of multiple of 5's and multiple of 2's , we will always end up with a last digit of zero's. Example: 5 ^1* 2^1 => last digit is 0 5^2 * 2^2 => last 2 digits are 0 so 5^19 * 2^17 will have 17 0's on the right hand side. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong...

Hi all, i was just wondering if it is always possible to use the approach of "intern" with those kind of questions?

It seems the most easiest way to me.

Many thanks
