# Number theory : Why mod 100, 1000 ,etc?

Why do we deal with Euler's Theorem and perform calculation on mod 100,1000,etc. while solving questions like: What are the last three digits of $$7^{999}$$ ?

Euler theorem helps us to deal with large congruences like mod 100 and mod 1000 with ease.

But why mod 100, 1000?

For finding out the last and last but one digits , we work in mod 10 and mod 100 systems respectively.
