Hi! Well, you can do this easily too! Come-on! Write the rem's obtained when 7 power 1-12 are divided by 13. You will find the numbers 1-12 are cycled. Simply plug-in the value of rem\(7^{7}\) from there. That's all. Is 6 correct? Tell me where you got this from also! Please!!!!!Log in to reply

@Rishabh Jain . Well the answer is that the expression is 6 mod 13 and also 3 mod 10 (last digit). Tell me if its right, if yes, I shall very soon post a full solution. I can perhaps give a small hint that you must analyse the remainders obtained on divison of powers of 7 by 13 till u get a pattern/chain. Or plug in euler :p – Krishna Ar · 2 years, 9 months ago
