\(501 \times502 \times503 = (500+1)(500+2)(500+3) =500(500+2)(500+3) + (500(500+3)) +2(500) + 6\) .....when dividing by \(25\) the only term left out is \(6\) the remaining are evenly divisible by \(25\) ..therefore the remainder is \(\boxed{6}\). Anik Mandal · 1 year, 11 months ago

(500+1)X(500+2)X(500+3)=Multiple of 100+6 i.e. last 2 digits are 06. Therefore remainder when divided by 25 is 6. Prince Loomba · 1 year, 5 months ago
