COMMENTS
a(n) will always be a divisor of Phi(100) = 40.
This sequence is periodic with a period of 100 because n^i mod 100 = (n + 100)^i mod 100.
For the odd numbers n ending in {1, 3, 7, 9} which are coprime to 10, we can expect the powers of n mod 100 to loop back to 1, with the value of n^a(n) mod 100 = 1, but for the other numbers n that are not coprime to 10, they do not loop back to 1.
For the even numbers n ending in {2, 4, 6, 8}, the value of n^a(n) mod 100 will be equal to 76.
For the numbers n that are congruent to 5 (mod 20), the value of n^i mod 100 will be equal to 25, for all i >= 2.
For the numbers n that are congruent to 15 (mod 20), the value of n^a(n) mod 100 will be equal to 25, with n^i mod 100 = 25 for the even values of i and n^i mod 100 = 75 for the odd values of i, for all i >= 2.
For the numbers n ending in 0, i.e., that are congruent to 0 (mod 10), the value of n^i mod 100 will be equal to 0, for all i >= 2.

EXAMPLE
a(2) = 20 since 2^i mod 100, for i = 2..22 = {04, 08, 16, 32, 64, 28, 56, 12, 24, 48, 96, 92, 84, 68, 36, 72, 44, 88, 76, 52, 04}.
a(3) = 20 since 3^i mod 100, for i = 0..20 = {01, 03, 09, 27, 81, 43, 29, 87, 61, 83, 49, 47, 41, 23, 69, 07, 21, 63, 89, 67, 01}.
But a(7) = 4 since 7^i mod 100, for i = 0..4 = {01, 07, 49, 43, 01}.
