# Powers of 101

Algebra Level 3

The first few powers of 101 all begin with 1, as highlighted by red colors below: \begin{aligned} 101^1 &=& {\color{#D61F06}{1}}01 \\ 101^2 &=& {\color{#D61F06}{1}}0201 \\ 101^3 &=& {\color{#D61F06}{1}}030301 \\ 101^4 &=& {\color{#D61F06}{1}}04060401 \\ &\vdots.& \end{aligned} Is that always the case for all powers of 101?
