I want to find Last 3 digits of 3^4798 I found one solution that can be explained by Euler's phi function.

Somebody suggest any alternative solution ?

Remember to wrap math in \( ... \) or \[ ... \] to ensure proper formatting.`2 \times 3`

`2^{34}`

`a_{i-1}`

`\frac{2}{3}`

`\sqrt{2}`

`\sum_{i=1}^3`

`\sin \theta`

TopNewestYou could write \(3^{4798} = 9^{2399} = (10-1)^{2399} = \displaystyle\sum_{k = 0}^{2399} \dbinom{2399}{k}\cdot 10^k \cdot (-1)^{2399-k}\), and then use the fact that only term that is not a multiple of \(10\) is the \(k = 0\) term which is \(-1\). So, the last digit is \(9\).

EDIT: I misread the question as the last digit instead of the last 3 digits. As Daniel C. pointed out below, this can be fixed by using the \(k = 0,1,2\) terms.

last digit is easy one and may alternative solutions are there for that We need last 3 digits

Thanks

Well, then use the last three terms of the expansion Jimmy K. provided.
