More on the last 2 digits of a^k = N 2020-08-07
Jay pose la question :
I've seen solution methods for finding the last 2 digits of a^k = N, where a and k are known. My question is:

What if the number N is known and the last 2 digits are, say, ...62. Is there a way to find, for any given a, the value of k which will result in a number where the last 2 digits are ...62? and if that is possible, then do the same for a number with the last n digits (say 7 or 53 or something)?
