By div, do you mean quotient?

and what does 11/3, 113 mean @jiteshmeghwal9 ?

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
and why is @bahrom7893 wrong @ParthKohli ?

Depends on your question...\[\large \rm a ~div~b=a\div b?\]

@lgbasallote How is the modulus 2? Can you show so?

Parth... i thought modulus was a remainder when a is divided by b. That's what it means in programming.

oh it's 11.. shoot i got my mod wrong

so then...?

A mod B is A%B, or the remainder when A is divided by B

@bahrom7893 now prove that 2 mod 3 is equivalent to 1 mod 3.

lol parth i have no clue how to prove that.

but it must be hahah

Dude 2 mod 3 = 1 1 mod 3 = 1 So they are equivalent.

According to definition, actually, modulus is 'c' in the following: n = a x b + c

since when did 2 divided by 3 become 1...you have to teach me some arithmetic master

do you?

Use the Euclidean Algorithm then.

a variation of Euclidean Algorithm actually...

If this is true:\[\large \rm a\cdot b +c=n\]Then this is true:\[\rm \large n~mod~a=c\]Where \(\rm b\) is an integer.
 one year ago

ParthKohli Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
The above is the actual definition of modulus.
 one year ago

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
b is n/a
 one year ago

ParthKohli Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
And that definition does satisfy the following:\[\rm \large 3\cdot(1)+1 = 2\]Therefore\[2\mod 3=1\]
 one year ago

ParthKohli Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
compare the above with the definition:\[\rm \large a = 3\]\[\large \rm b = 1\]\[\rm \large c = 1 = 2mod3\]
 one year ago

ParthKohli Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3

lol I am... I just proved you that \(\rm \large (2) mod3 = 1\)
 one year ago

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
you just have 2 mod 3 = ? show me how you get that to be 1
 one year ago

I just did...
 one year ago

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
you didn't really prove...because you just assumed a value of b and c and equated them
 one year ago

ParthKohli Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
That's the definition of modulus, dude.
 one year ago

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
show me a solution that tells me 2 mod 3 is 1
 one year ago

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
you have two unknows..you can't use the definition
 one year ago

ParthKohli Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
I'd show you all of it in one post.
 one year ago

ParthKohli Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
The definition is as follows: If this is true, a * b + c = n Then this is also true, n mod a = c Now, this is true: 3 * (1) + 1 = 2 Then, this is ought to be true: 2 mod 3 = 1
 one year ago

ParthKohli Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Would you like it with hearts and smileys? Oh, also see that b is an integer.
 one year ago

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
but the question you refuse to answer is... how do you get those values???
 one year ago

ParthKohli Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
What values?

1and 1..you can't pull them out of nowhere

ParthKohli Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Do you think that my answer works according to the definition? Oh, and you have to try and test in the Euclidean Algorithm too.

i'm not asking about the definition! i'm asking about your numbers

i can also say 3*(2) + 4 = 2 so i can say 2 mod 3 is 4

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so you're wrong by *my* answer

2 mod 3 should be 4 not 1

11 mod 3

ParthKohli Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
\[\rm \large 3\cdot(4)+1 = 11 \]Right?
 one year ago

ParthKohli Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
\[11\mod3\equiv 1\]But also...
 one year ago

ParthKohli Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
\[\rm \large 3\cdot(5) + 4 = 11\]
 one year ago

ParthKohli Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
So we can say that\[\rm \Huge 11\mod3 \equiv1+3k\]where k is an integer.

i already know everything you were saying (you just overcomplicated everything by circling around)....no one was able to answer my question actually... i'll just wait for the big boys to go online...then i can ask them...

Sorry, if it was modulo, then it's just the remainder.
