Fermats Little Theorem
Good morning, Just working through an example but ive gotten stuck and need some help. So find the least residue of 8^123 Mod 61 So 8^60 = 1 (mod 61) 8^120 = (8^60)^2 = 1^2 = 1 (mod 61) 123 = 2*60+3 So 8^2*60+3 = (8^60)^2 x 8^3 = 1^2 x 8^3 = 1 x 512 = 512 Can anyone please let...

2K^4 * (3K)^2 becomes 2K^4 * 9K^2 because the parenthesis must be removed before doing your multiplication. So the (3K)^2 goes through (3^2)(k^2) to become 9k^2. From there the constants multiply together and the exponents add together, giving you 18K^6.
