Expert Answer:

5n doesnot end with the digit 0 for any value of n.

This is because the only prime in the factorisation of 5 is 5.

 

So, the uniqueness of the Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic guarantees that there are no

other primes in the factorisation of 5n.

So, there is no natural number n for which 5n ends with the digit zero.
