Find the units place in the result of the expression:
240234 + 345344 x 1011009 – 36211
Answer:
Unit’s place of 240234 = 0
Unit’s place of 345344 = 5
Unit’s place of 1011009 = 1
Unit’s place of 36211 = 6
Units place of the expression
= 0 + 5 x 1 – 6 = 9
(When subtracting 5 from 6 in unit’s place we will borrow 1 for 5, 15 -6 = 9)

Question:
Find the unit digit of the expression
1211 + 1312 + 1718 + 1817

Unit’s place of 1817 = 8
Sum of unit’s places = 8 + 1 + 9 + 8 = 26
Unit’s digit = 6

Shortcut 81:
Finding remainder
R[(a*b*c)/p]=R(a/p)*R(b/p)*R(c/p)
Question:
Find the remainder when 212 x 313 x 414 is divided by 5.
Answer:
Using the above concept we can find the remainder for each term and then we can multiply.
R(212/5) = 2
R(313/5) = 3
R(414/5) = 4
2 x 3 x 4 = 24
The value we got is still greater than 5, so again divide it and find the remainder.
R(24/5) = 4
The remainder of the expression is = 4
