When x is divided by 7, the remainder is 3. When x^3 is divided by 7, the remainder will be \(\frac{3*3*3}{7}=\frac{27}{7}=\frac{3*7+6}{7}\)..
remainder is 6
E

==> For remainder questions, it is important to use direct substitutions. From X=7p+3=3,10,17,…., if you substitute x=3, from x^3=3^3=27=7(3)+6, you get a remainder of 6.

Therefore, the answer is E.
Answer: E

This is how I did
Condition 1
x/7== remainder 3
take x=10
10/7==3
Now
x^3/7
10^3/7=1000/7==Remainder=6
Please correct me if I am wrong since I am beginner :)
TIA
Option:E

When x is divided by 7, the remainder is 3. When x^3 is divided by 7, what is the remainder?

A few possible numbers for x=10, 17, 24.
X=10 would be easier. 1000/7. It will be better to just divide. Answer 6

We can simply take 3 also. Since , if 3 is divided by 7, he remainder I'll be 3 only.
So 3^3/7 yields a remainder of 6.

This just to make the thing even easier . [SMILING FACE WITH OPEN MOUTH]
