(a)

To determine

To prove: axb(modn), if and only if a0xb0(modn0).

(b)

To determine

To prove: If x1 and x2 are any two solutions to a0xb0(modn0), then it follows that x1x2(modn0).

(c)

To determine

To prove: If x1 is a fixed solution to a0xb0(modn0), then each of the integer in the list

x1,x1+n0,x1+2n0,,x1+(d1)n0 is a solution to axb(modn).

(d)

To determine

To prove: No two solutions in the list x1,x1+n0,x1+2n0,,x1+(d1)n0 are congruent modulo n.

(e)

To determine

To prove: Any solution to axb(modn) is congruent to one of the numbers in the list x1,x1+n0,x1+2n0,,x1+(d1)n0.
