A is the correct answer. We do not really need to calculate it. The last digit for 6^6 will be 6. Hence A is the correct answer

Absolutely true, no doubt about it , answer must be (A)

Check

6^1 = 6
6^2 = 36
6^3 = 216

and so on............


One more thing to remember here is that 6 is a product of 2 and 3

So, we may say \(6^6\) = \((2*3)^6\)
So. whatever may be the result the number must be divisible by 2 and 3 both

Check the above property -

A. 46,656

1. Divisible by 2 as last digit (6 ) is even digit
2. Divisible by 3 as sum of all the digits ( 4+6+6+5+6 = 27 ) is divisible by 3

Hence I am double sure answer is (A)
:-D :o

in powers only 5 and 6 is multiplied so many times itself.
last digits will 5 and 6 respectively.

so option A only have 6 in last digit.

so option A is correct.

The cyclicity of 6 is one => 6,6,6,6,6,6,6,6,6,6,6,6,6,6,6...
Hence the UD will be 6
so A must be the choice

6^6 is equal to which of the following?

A. 46,656
B. 48,752
C. 49,660
D. 50,662
E. 51,608

2^6 * 3^3 * 3^3
64*27*27 = 7*7*4 = 6 (Units digit) It only matches with A.
