# Powers of 101

Algebra Level 3

The first few powers of 101 all begin with 1, as highlighted by red colors below: $\begin{eqnarray} 101^1 &=& {\color{red}{1}}01 \\ 101^2 &=& {\color{red}{1}}0201 \\ 101^3 &=& {\color{red}{1}}030301 \\ 101^4 &=& {\color{red}{1}}04060401 \\ &\vdots.& \end{eqnarray}$ Is that always the case for all powers of 101?
