If n and m are positive integers, what is the remainder when $$3^{4n+2} + m$$ is divided by 10 ?

(1) n = 2
(2) m = 1

3^1 = 3
3^2 = 9
3^3 = 27
3^4 = 81

In the question stem we have 3^(4n+2) regardless of the value of n the units digit will be 9

So we have a number with units digit 9 + m / 10

Only if we know the value m we would be able to find the remainder.

1) is insufficient

2) is sufficient

If n=1 then it is 729 + 1 = 730/10 = 73.
