I need to solve the following problem: "=" means is congruent to. x^7 = 12 mod 29 This is what I have: I am using q=2 as the primitive root mod 29. 7*I(x)=I(12) mod 28 7*I(x)=7 mod 28 I(x) = 1 mod 4 What do I do next?

never mind, I got it. i will post the solution later
Well , so we know . Therefore Our solutions are thus . Note that these are the only solutions since is a primitive root, so generate all possibe solutions.
