Last digit of Product of two Large or Small numbers (a * b)

Given two large or small numbers, the task is to find the last digit of the product of these two numbers.

Examples:

Input: a = 1234567891233789, b = 567891233156156
Output: 4

Input: a = 123, b = 456
Output: 8

Approach: In general, the last digit of multiplication of 2 numbers a and b is the last digit of the product of the LSB of these two numbers.
For example: For a = 123 and b = 456,
the last digit of a*b
= Last digit of ((LSB of a)*(LSB of b))
= Last digit of ((3)*(6))
= Last digit of (18)
= 8



Below is the implementation of the above approach:
