7^2=49         last two digit=49
7^3=243       last two digit=43
7^4=1701     lasr two  digit=01
7^5=8507     last two digit=07
7^6=59549   last two digit=49
7^7=              last two digit=43
7^8=              last two digit=01
We notice that
last two digit in 7^n=07 when n=4k+3
last two digit in 7^n=49 when n=4k+2
last two digit in 7^n=43 when n=4k+1
last two digit in 7^n=01 when n=4k
2008=4*502=>7^2008=7^n=>n=504
Hence last two digit in 7^2008 is 01.
