What is the remainder when \(5555^{2222}+2222^{5555}\) is divided by 7?
--> \((7m+4)^{2222}+(7n+3)^{2222}= ... + 4^{2222}+ ...+ 3^{5555}\)

\(4^{2222}= (7-3)^{2222}= ...+3^{2222}\)
-------------------------------------------

-->\(3^{2222} + 3^{5555}= 3^{2222}*(1+ 3^{3333})= 3^{2222}*(1+ 27^{1111})= 3^{2222}*(1+ (28-1)^{1111})\)

--> \(3^{2222}*(1+ (7x^{1111}+ ...-(1)^{1111})= 3^{2222}*(1+ (7x)^{1111}+ ...-1)= 3^{2222}*(7x)^{1111}\)

\(3^{2222}*(7x)^{1111}\) can be divided by 7. The remainder will be 0

The answer choice A is Correct

What is the remainder when \(5555^{2222}+2222^{5555}\) is divided by 7?

In the binomial theorem, \((a + b)^n=(a^n) + nC1(a^{n-1}*b^1) + nC2(a^{n-2}*b^2) + .... + nC1(a^1*b^{n-1}) + b^n\).(C stands for the combination)
When it comes to the expression given, \(5555^{2222} = (7n + 4)^{2222}\). (n is the quotient of 5555/7)
Let's say a=7n and b=4, \((7n + 4)^{2222} = 7n^{2222} + ..... + (2222C2221)(7n^1 * 4^{2221}) + 4^{2222}.\)
Thus, \(5555^{2222} = 7m + 4^{2222}\).(7m is the simplified form of \(7n^{2222} + ..... + (2222C2221)(7n^1 * 4^{2221})\))
Similarly, \(2222^{5555} = (7r + 3)^{5555}\).
Hence, \(2222^{5555} = 7s + 3^{5555}\).
So, \(5555^{2222} + 2222^{5555} = 7m + 7s + 4^{2222} + 3^{5555}\)

Since we need only the remainder of the expression, we can ignore 7n.

Then, \(4^{2222} + 3^{5555} = 16^{1111} + 243^{1111}\)
Because \(a^n + b^n\) is divisible by a + b when n is odd.

\(4^{2222} + 3^{5555} = t * (16 + 243)\)
Because 259 is divisible by 7, the remainder is 0.

The answer is A

Sorry, but I could not post a new comment.
So, I revised my post to express the binomial theorem explicitly.
Hope it helps.

Using the binomial theorem, \(5555^{2222}+2222^{5555}= 7n + 4^{2222} + 3^{5555}\)
Since we need only the remainder of the expression, we can ignore 7n.

Then, \(4^{2222} + 3^{5555} = 16^{1111} + 243^{1111}\)
Because \(a^n + b^n\) is divisible by a + b when n is odd.
\(4^{2222} + 3^{5555} = m * (16 + 243)\)
Because 259 is divisible by 7, the remainder is 0.

The answer is A



can you explain the bold line please?

I understand nothing of this question. Why do we pick 4 and 3 for b in the binominal theorem and how do we get from 3 to 243?

Concept : Remainder of when \(5555^{2222}\) is divided by 7 = Remainder when \(4^{2222}\) where Remainder [5555/7] = 4


Concept : Remainder of when \(2222^{5555}\) is divided by 7 = Remainder when \(3^{5555}\) where Remainder [2222/7] = 3



Remainder \(5555^{2222} + 2222^{5555}\) divided by 7 = Remainder \(4^{2222} + 3^{5555}\) divided by 7 = 0 {because 4+3=7}

Asked: What is the remainder when \(5555^{2222} + 2222^{5555}\) is divided by 7?

Remainder when 5555^{2222} + 2222^{5555} is divided by 7
= Remainder when 4^{2222} + 3^{5555} is divided by 7
= Remainder when 4^2 + (-1)^{1851}*3^2 is divided by 7 since 4^3 = 64 = 63 + 1 and 3^3 = 27 = 28 -1
= Remainder when 16 - 9 = 7 is divided by 7
= 0


IMO A

step 1: 5555/7
55/7 = 6 rem
65/7 = 2 rem
25/7 = 4rem
so 4^2 =16
16/7 = 2 rem-------------- (i)
Step 2: 2222/7
22/7 = 1 rem
12/7 = 5rem
52/7 =3 rem
now 3^5 = 9*9*3
again 9/7 = 2 rem
9/7 = 2 rem
2*2*3/7 = 5 rem----------- (ii)
add (i+ii)
(2+5)/7 = 0 remainder that is the ans

if anyone have any query plz ask
