A 2006 Problem (Posted on 2006-07-27) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Determine the remainder when 612006 is divided by 2006.

Can you do this in a short time using pen and paper, and eventually a hand calculator, but no computer programs?

As I don't know of many short-cuts with working with large numbers, I will settle with using a calculator....

MOD(612006) = 145

(I did not actually use a hand calculator.  I used the BigNumber Calculator Applet located at http://www.theworld.com/~reinhold/BigNumCalc.html )
