Textbook Problem

Modular division can be performed by considering the related multiplication problem. For instance, if 5 ÷ 7 = x , then x ⋅ 7 = 5 . Similarly, the quotient ( 5 ÷ 7 ) mod 8 is the solution to the congruence equation x ⋅ 7 ≡ 5 mod 8 , which is 3. Find the given quotient. ( 2 ÷ 7 ) mod 8

To determine

To calculate: To find the quotient of (2÷7)mod8

Explanation

Given information: Expression (2÷7)mod8 is given

Calculation:

Consider the following expression (2÷7)mod8

The quotient of the above expression is the solution of the congruence equation x72mod8

Now solve the equation x72mod8

Begin with 0; substitute each whole number less than 8 into the congruence equation to get

x=07(0)2mod8 not a solution x=17(1)2mod8 not a solution x=27(2)2mod8 not a solution x
