Find a great variety of ways of asking questions which make 8.
What is the units digit for the number 123^(456) ?
Choose any 3 digits and make a 6 digit number by repeating the 3
digits in the same order (e.g. 594594). Explain why whatever digits
you choose the number will always be divisible by 7, 11 and 13.
If the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 are all multiplied together, how many zeros are there at the end of the answer?
