Consider the remainder when an integer is divided by another integer.
For example, if a/b, and a = bq+r
a mod b = r
like 14 mod 5 = 4
- If a + b = c
then, a (mod n) + b (mod n) = c (mod n)
(A – B) mod C = (A mod C – B mod C) mod C
Let a,b be two integers and m be a positive integer other than 1. Then ‘a’ is said to be congruent to ‘b’ modulo m, if m divides (a-b).
a = b (mod m)
For example, 123 = 21 (mod 6) why?
(123-21)/6 = 102/6 = 17.
a = b (mod m), because m divides (a-b) completely.
