But \(15.2^{2n}\) for odd numbers n will be congruent to 60 modulo 100 (that's not hard to see), so we have proven in inductively.

I believe it should be pronounced like this: pronounce log, but with a B instead of an l, then say the name Dan :D

Okay... Can you explain?Log in to reply

Multiply by 16^2 and add \(15.2^{2n+4}\) and you will get the next such number.So the new number will be congruent to

\(256.28+15.2^{2n+4}\equiv 68+15.2^{2n+4}(mod100)\)
