Hi all,

I will write out the word congruent instead of the symbol, as we use three lines over one another and I could not find a way to write it out.

The question: "Let x be congruent to 5 (mod 6). Show that x^2 is congruent to 1 (mod 24)."

I believe I need to set up one equation as indices, and somehow set them equal to each other?

Such as if x is congruent to 5 (mod 6), one could write that as x = 6k +5 and x^2 = 24j + 1.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
