# Thread: What is the name of this formula?

1. ## What is the name of this formula?

Hello Everyone

I am just new in this forum and I am wondering if this formula is known and what is the name.

z = x * (x * (x * (x * (x % y) % y) % y) % y) % y

Thanks in advance

2. Excuse me but... what does mean the operator '%'?... thak you!...

Kind regards

$\chi$ $\sigma$

3. Is this a modulus operator? If so, i'm faintly seeing what purpose it might have. Mind telling me what it's supposed to accomplish?

4. Yes it is a modulus. And I found the name: modular power
