    Solution of Question 3.
    (2^1040 )/131 gives remainder ?
    a/c to fermat’s rule..
    when hcf(a,p)=1;
    then first we have to arrange to this is in fermat’s rule.
    then we write, {(2^(131-1))8}/131
    then (1)^8/131=1;
    hence remainder is equals to 1.

    Solution of Question 4
    put p=2
    we will get
    m^2 +m-56=0
    m=7 or -8
    m=-8 is not possible,becoz given dat m is +ve integer
    only m=7 satisfy
    let me check
    only one solution is possible

    (2^1040 )/131 gives remainder ?
    Apply Euler’s
    E(131) = 130 //Prime Number E(P) = P-1
    1040 mod 130 = 0
    New Question –
    2^0 mod 131
    1 mod 131 = 1 (Ans)

      Q.6 > x is real no
      [x] is greatest no
      then equation is 3|x|+2-[x]=0
      is not a Quadratic equation (ax^2+bx+c) so we can not find roots.

    Now take p common from L.H.S and the equation becomes…


    We can expand p5−1

    as follows


    So equation becomes..


    Divide both the side by (p−1)

    and equation becomes….



    will always be even number for every natural number of m.

    And p4+p3+p2+p

    is an even number because sum of two prime numbers is even.

    Thus (p4+p3+p2+p+1)

    is odd.

    And as a result p(p4+p3+p2+p+1)

    is also odd because product of a prime number and odd number is odd.

    So L.H.S is odd while R.H.S is even. It means we have NO SOLUTION.

    But WAIT !!!!

    What will happen if value of p is 2. 2 is the only even prime number.

    If value of p is 2 the our L.H.S will be even because product of a even number and odd number is even.

    Equation becomes…..

    ) =(m2+m+6)



    or m=−8

    Value of m cannot be negative as it is given that m is a positive integer.

    So only for one prime number this equation holds true when p = 2 and m = 7.

    Thus this equation has only ONE SOLUTION.
