how would i solve
im getting confused around the mod 13 and finding its inverse would appreciate answer..exam revision!thanks
From , we have
Sub into :
Sub into x=3t+2, 3(8s+1)+2=24s+5
This must be an integer. That occurs first at s=10
By resubbing, we get 8(10)+1=82, 3(81)+2=245
We can check this and see it checks on our congruencies
Make sure I didn't go astray somewhere. Make sure this is the smallest.
Hey, check what I just found. I ran our problem through it and it checks
That reminds me, the solutions should be written as 245 mod 312. I just posted the smallest.
