    doesnot exist as inverse only possible for one-one function

    y=|x| ? inverse of this will not be a function

    modulus is a many-one function hence it's inverse not possible

    NO PROBLEMAS SENIOUR @hartnn ! Let B be the set of ordered pairs of pairs-of-numbers, in other words pairs of points in the plane: \[ b \in B \,\,\iff b=(P_1, P_2) \] then the inverse function of \[Abs^{-1}(y) = ((y,y),(y,-y)) \] and a medal , naturally. forgive my humbleness...

    The Abs is of course |x| not the algebraic coincidence of names.

    if modulus is with only number then it is one-one and inverse will exist

    Anyway also for remainder possible to invert \[ mod:\,r_{Ideal} \rightarrow r \\ mod^{-1}: r \rightarrow r_{Ideal}\]

    i think the question is maybe something different, are you asking how do you solve \[x\equiv y (mod n)\] for \(y\) if you know \(x\) ?

    ideals live in arbitrary rings, and are not necessary for understanding elementary number theory

    By the way the only proper way to make equivalence necessary for "REMAINDER CALCULUS" is bu using ideals. Elementary - well yes.

    Firstly is the "cyclical group". It will give you the applications. Only then that. This takes you further
