    when u expand it ull get all terms with a 5 or some power of 5 in them except fr the last one so ure left with 27(5q - 2) +2

    \(3^{8n}\) if 3 has powers which are divisible by 4, then Remainder it has is 1.. Here : 8n is divisible by 4..

    Similary, \(3^3\) will give you 7 as Unit place..

    So: \[3^{8n} \cdot 3^3 + 2 \implies 1 \cdot 7 + 2 \implies 9\]

    So, what will you get as remainder when you divide 9 by 5 ??
