what is the remainder when 3^19 is divided by 10
The answer is 7 but I don't understand why. Is it as simple as 10-3?
Just look at how power of 3 works..
3^1 = 3 3^2 = 9 3^3 = 27 3^4 = 81 3^5 =243 .....
You'd notice that unit digit repeats itself after every 4 numbers.. In other words, 3^19 will have same unit number as 3^15, or 3^11 or 3^7 or 3^3....Which tells us, 3^19 has unit digit as 7..
Now, we know that any number with unit digit as 7 when divided by 10 will give u 7....

what is the remainder when 3^19 is divided by 10?
Units digit of 3^n (n = 1,2,3....) follows the following pattern: 3,9,7,1,3,9,7,1... When divided by 10, the remainders would be 3,9,7,1,3,9,7,1... 3^19/10 -> remainder = 7

I got D, and this is how I solved: I looked for patterns: ^2 - units digit 9 ^3 - units digit 7 ^4 - units digit 1 ^5 - units digit 3
hence, we can see that when raised to a power which is multiple of 4, the units digit is 1, and when to an even power not multiple of 4, the units digit is 9 and we can then see: ^16 - units digit 1, or ^18 - units digit 9 and ^19 - units digit 7
therefore, when divided by 10, the remainder must be 7
