1. 1) Show 5^14 = 10 (mod 15).

In the question it says it may be useful to find 5^14 mod 3 and mod 5, so I've done that:

By FLT, 5^2 = 1 (mod 3), so 5^14 = 1 (mod 3), so 5^14 - 10 = 0 (mod 3)

5^14 = 0 (mod 5), so 5^14 - 10 = 0 (mod 5)

Unsure about where to go from here, been stuck for ages, pls help
