    Prove that large number is a multiple of 7 using modular arithmetic

    How can you show that 3^54321 - 6 is a multiple of 7? I know you would use modular arithmetic (and maybe the Euclidean algorithm?), but I don't know how to go about doing that. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Arithmetic Sequence

    I learned a few formulae studying arithmetic sequences: Sn=n/2(t1+tn) Sn=n/2(t1+(n-1)d) But for some questions, I did not have Tn. So, I made some tables and found a useful formula for determining tn when that information was missing: tn=t1d+n-d I just want to know if it is a known formula...

    Finding a large term in an arithmetic sequence

    A problem asks to find the 204th term of an arithmetic sequence with fourth term 8 and sixth term 36. The answer given is: 808 However, I'm not clear how that is determined. I though the equation to determine a term was an = a1 + (n-1)*d

    Arithmetic Sequence. Finding a1 and d

    This is one of the given numbers in my book: a1 = x, d = 1/2x, a14 = 30 I can easily do this one: a1 = x, d = 3x, a9 = 25 Since there are no fractions. But once there are fractions, I seriously can't find the answer anymore. Please help. Thank you in advance (Talking)(Talking)
