Hi well i m not sure that my answer is correct (as i m in class9) according to me solution is

2^2000 × 5^2004 =2^2000×5^2000 × 5^4 =(2^2000×5^2000) + 25×25 ... '+' sign for sum of digits

=10^2000 × 625

Sum of digits = 626 · 3 weeks, 4 days ago

CORRECTION : ...... = 2^2000×5^2000×5^4 =10^2000 × 625 THEREFORE DIGIT SUM = 6+2+5 =13 ..... Q.E.D. · 3 weeks, 1 day ago
