You can also do it on the web2 calc (it is on the Home page)

 

Mod(3^46,8)

 

$$\left({{\mathtt{3}}}^{{\mathtt{46}}}\right) {Mod} \left({\mathtt{8}}\right) = {\mathtt{1}}$$

31 = 3 mod 8 = 3     33 = 27 mod 8 = 3     35 = 243 mod 8 = 3

32 = 9 mod 8 = 1     34 = 81 mod 8 = 1     36 = 729 mod 8 = 1

So, if the exponent is even, its mod 8 value is 8 ...

and, if the exponent is add, its mode 8 value is 1 ...
