Friday.Because 13 is equal to -1 modulo 7, so 13^2013 is equal to(-1)^2013=-1. One day before Saturday would be Friday.

FRIDAY

Answer: Friday.

Friday

13 = -1 (mod 7)

So, 13^2013 = -1 (mod 7) = 6 (mod 7)

So, it was Saturday after (13^2013 – 6) days from now.

Hence after 13^2013 days, it will be Friday.
