    \(a≡b \pmod n \implies a=n.k+b \) where \( k\in \mathbb{N} \) \(c≡d \pmod n \implies c=n.p+d \) where \( p\in \mathbb{N} \) \(a-c = nk+b-np-d = n(k-p) +(b-d)\), where \( (k-p)\in \mathbb{N} \). Hence \((a−c)≡(b−d) \pmod n \) QED!

    c= pn+d a-c=n(k-p)+b-d :P......m late

    Similarly we can show that \( (a+c)≡(b+d) \pmod n \) and more generally \( (pa+qc)≡(pb+qd) \pmod n \)

    so basically we need to show that difference between a and c will be a multiple of n
