    Wow. I did it by finding patterns in the last 2-3 digits of powers of 6 and powers of 8. I still arrived at the right answer though.'

    What does it mean that a number _p_ is relatively prime to another number _n_ ?
    Is is that _p_ does not divide _n_ ?

      No. Two numbers are co-prime (relatively prime to each other) if they do not share any common factors, or equivalently if their greatest common divisor is 1.

    Really great video, how do you come up with these awesome maths questions???

    I was frustratingly close to that. Of your N steps, I had N-2 of them written down but couldn't quite pull it all together. I'll work through it carefully and hopefully the next time Euler raises his head I'll get there.

    Will you go over the 2019 FRQ problems for the AP Calculus BC test when it is released?

      @Smokie Bear 🔴🔵 *Edit: After much debate, I decided to not upload AP FRQ videos for this year, mainly because I believe I cannot post a series of explanation that is of a significantly higher quality than those already posted. If you are interested, turksvids has uploaded all solutions to AP Calclus AB/BC FRQ's from this year: usclip.net/user/turksvids

      I’m so mad. I think I got all the multiple choice right but on ONE part of ONE free response I made ONE mistake cuz I just assumed that the question was asked in the same way as it was in the practice questions. NotLikeThis

      I do plan to review AP Calculus AB and BC Free Response problems once they are released. Best of luck on your score if you took the exam today! =)
