The trick:

Entering a fourdigit number twice means multiplying the fourdigit number by 10001.
Example: 1236 x 10001 = 1236 x (10000 + 1)
= 1236 x 10000 + 1236 x 1
= 12360000 + 1236
= 12361236

Since 10001 = 73 x 137, it is always divisible by 137.

If you divide 12361236 by 137, the remainder will be the product of 73 and the fourdigit number.

If you divide the remainder by the fourdigit number, the remainder will always be 73. Simple!
