LASTDIG - The last digit

Nestor was doing the work of his math class about three days but he is tired of make operations a lot and he should deliver his task tomorrow. His math’s teacher gives him two numbers a and b. The problem consist of finding the last digit of the potency of base a and index b. Help Nestor with his problem. You are given two integer numbers: the base a (0 <= a <= 20) and the index b (0 <= b <= 2,147,483,000), a and b both are not 0. You have to find the last digit of ab.


The first line of input contains an integer t, the number of test cases (t <= 30). t test cases follow. For each test case will appear a and b separated by space.


For each test case output an integer per line representing the result.


3 10
6 2

Output: 9 6

Help! Why do I get WA (18717784) (haskell)? :c It works for every test case even b=0 or a=0

Got AC after 4 WA.Forgot to check 0 in power[any power zero =1].
#My 25th.

If you're using exponentiation, you're doing it wrong :D

@koko4nut please help me i am getting a TLE how can i optimize my code

@koko4nut Thank You, but what exactly is the mistake because of which its not getting accepted?

koko4nut: 2016-12-16 09:24:21

@tejman1809 . Your test is successful returning "0" when a = b = 0.
Or this operation is not permitted like a division by 0.
And indent properly your code! for your own good and others!!!
It felt like having nails scratching my eye balls.

I used the logic that the last digit that we will get from a^b will be same as that we will get from a^m where m=b%4
I dont know why am i getting a WA
