E32. Fifth powers final digit

The following rather neat problem occurs in Challenging Problems in Algebra by Alfred S. Posamentier and Charles T. Salkind. I think it is suitable for a bright high school student or, with some hints, even for average high school students.

Prove that n and n5 always end in the same digit (in ordinary base-10 representation).
