9*111 9*3*37 \[(9*3*37)^9)^3)^{37}\] not sure if something like that would be a good idea

well .. i was thinking like factoring it. it's a programming problem http://projecteuler.net/problem=48 if you do this directly on any language ... returns Not an integer

i wouldnt know right off hand what that is :) but, maybe \[(10001)^3)^9)^{37}\]

this looks promising \[ (1000  1)^{999} = \sum_{i=0}^{999} \binom{999}{i}1000^i\]

yes it does :)

and maybe a (1)^(999i) perhaps

yeah ... i can calculate it programatically (for this particular problem). I still need to generalize it to every terms. this won't be nice. this isn't nice. I hope there is nice algebra.

how did you get zero for dw:1348816150400:dw

oh I see, because (10^3)^4 mod 10^10= 0

this ain't easy ... you can write a short program to determine what are the first ten terms. still this is quite long.

well ive never seen mod used in binomial problems this is cool

valpeys solution is fine, why dont you use that?

experimentX Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
because that is only for particular 999 which I posed for this particular problem. My original problem is to find the first ten digits of \[ 1^1 + 2^2 + 3^3 + ... + 1000^{1000}\]

experimentX Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
for 999, the one is parts 1000 and 1 < this one factor makes things easy. for 998 the other part is 2 .... I can't ignore powers of 2

The first ten digits of 1^1 +2^2 +3^3 +...+1000^1000 is the first ten digits of 1000^1000 As 1000^1000 > 10^10 *999^999
 one year ago

sauravshakya Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
And first ten digits of 1000^1000 is 1000000000 Thus, the first ten digit of 1^1+2^2+3^3+...+1000^1000 is 1000000000

i think the problem is to find the last ten digit of it. You don't have to find out the solution using purely maths only, you can use computer to calculate. the problem is taken from here http://projecteuler.net/
