If x is a positive integer and <z> is the greatest multiple of ten less than or equal to z, what is the value of x-<x>?

(1) <x^14> + x^15 has a units digit of 7
(2) <x^15> + x^16 has a units digit of 1

I'm a little confuse when you say "<z> is the greatest multiple of ten...." from there I'm a little lost. Would be glad if somebody can help.

Thanks!

<z> means for eg <5> will be 0 as 0 is the only multiple of 10 which is less than 5 but if it is <20> then value will be 20 as 20 is the multiple of 10 which is equal to the given value.
