Its basically asking the remainder of $$\frac{63^{33}×36^{195}}{10}$$
And it all depends on the unit's digit of $$63^{33}×36^{195}$$

Units digit of $$63^{33}$$ depends on cyclicity of 3.
$$63^{1}$$ = 3
$$63^{2}$$ = 9
$$63^{3}$$ = 7
$$63^{4}$$ = 1
$$63^{5}$$ = 3
.
.
.
$$63^{32}$$ = 1
$$63^{33}$$ = 3

Hence the units digit would be: 3

On the other hand, the units digit of $$36^{195}$$, will depend on cyclicity of 6, which is 1 and the units digit it always 6.

Hence the unit's digit of the expression $$63^{33}×36^{195}$$ is $$3x6=18$$ =>8

Therefore, the remainder when we divide the above expression by 10 would be 8

Option D

Hello Bunuel !

I am just wondering...

Is it the same approach if in the statement would have been written without the "Y"?

$$\frac{X}{(10)}$$

Thank you so much in advance! Re: If X/Y=63^33×36^195, what is the remainder of X/(10Y)?   [#permalink] 22 Jan 2019, 14:30
