Given positive integers k, a and b we need to print last k digits of a^b ie.. pow(a, b).
Input Constraint: k <= 9, a <= 10^6, b<= 10^6
Input : a = 11, b = 3, k = 2 Output : 31 Explanation : a^b = 11^3 = 1331, hence last two digits are 31 Input : a = 10, b = 10000, k = 5 Output : 00000 Explanation : a^b = 1000..........0 (total zeros = 10000), hence last 5 digits are 00000
First Calculate a^b, then take last k digits by taking modulo with 10^k. Above solution fails when a^b is too large, as we can hold at most 2^64 -1 in C/C++.
The efficient way is to keep only k digits after every multiplication. This idea is very simiar to discussed in Modular Exponentiation where we discussed a general way to find (a^b)%c, here in this case c is 10^k.
Here is implementation.
Last 2 digits of 11^3 = 31
Time Complexity : O(log b)
Space Complexity : O(1)
