this is always true becuse \( (a+b) \mod m = c < m, c \in Z\m \)

What i have written below is correct right?? or should there be any change????? Definitions: Let Zm be the set of non negative integers less than m: {0,1, ., m−1} The operation +m is defined as a +m b = (a + b) mod m. This is addition modulo m. The operation ∙m is defined as a ∙m b = (a + b) mod m. This is multiplication modulo m. Using these operations is said to be doing arithmetic modulo m. Example: Find 7 +11 9 and 7 ·11 9. Solution: Using the definitions above: – 7 +11 9 = (7 + 9) mod11 = 16 mod11 = 5 – 7 ·11 9 = (7 ∙ 9) mod11 = 63 mod 11 = 8

you are mixing two things ... doing both of them at same time.

where did i mix them?? i have defined Zm,then defined addition and multiplication modulo and have given example 4 each...

let's work out one at each ... we do with (Zm,+) first.

but why do you want to give example?

definition with example is most expected... so that one can easily understand it....

choose m=10, or 5 for sake of ease. then {0,1,2,3,4} are the elements of group!! show that it remains closed, and is associative and has identity '0', and has inverse.

then is my answer wrong????

no i don't think so ... you put stuff in one place, and it hurt my eyes.

ZaaraBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
is it ok now??? Let Zm be the set of nonnegative integers less than m: {0,1, ., m−1} 1)The operation +m is defined as a +m b = (a + b) mod m. This is addition modulo m.(Zm,+) Example: Find 7 +11 9 Solution: Using the definitions above: 7 +11 9 = (7 + 9) mod11 = 16 mod11 = 5 2)The operation ∙m is defined as a ∙m b = (a + b) mod m. This is multiplication modulo m. Example: Find 7 ·11 9. Solution: Using the definitions above: 7 ·11 9 = (7 ∙ 9) mod11 = 63 mod 11 = 8

bt in the link u gave... they have shown for multiplication modulo only.... what can i do for addition modulo???????
 one year ago

experimentXBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
same ... show that (a+b) mod m is in the set!!.

experimentXBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
instead of multiplying, we add ,,, since operation is +.

Once you've shown closure, next step is to show that there is an element e of Zm (a nonnegative integer less than m) such that for any k in Zm e + k = k + e = k

ZaaraBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
similar to that??? r u sure???

terenzreignzBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
+ here is + modulo m, ok
 one year ago

terenzreignzBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Okay, I'll do this (because it's easier :P) and you do the "existence of inverse" part. Let k be in Zm Consider 0. 0 is a nonnegative integer. Since m is positive, 0 < m So 0 is in Zm 0 + k = 0 + k (mod m) = k(mod m) = k, since k is in Zm (and is therefore a nonnegative integer less than m). Similarly, k + 0 = k + 0 (mod m) = k(mod m) = k. Thus, we have shown that 0 + k = k + 0 = k Hence, 0 is the identity element in <Zm, +>.

terenzreignzBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
. Here's the gist of it. Consider an arbitrary element of Zm, and show that there is something that you can add (modulo m) to it so that the sum is 0 (the additive identity).

show that for a, ma is the it's inverse, and ma is also in the set.

@experimentX A spoiler alert, next time? LOL JK
 one year ago

terenzreignzBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Never mind, lol... Anyway, let a be in Zm. Your task is to show that an element ma exists, and ma is in Zm, and a + (m  a) = 0, where "+" here is + (mod m)
 one year ago

ZaaraBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
why ma??? i dnt get it...
 one year ago

terenzreignzBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Well, remember that in the world of Zm, every multiple of m is basically zero. So, when I said "what do you need to add to a so that you get zero", I really mean what do you need to add to a to get m...
 one year ago

terenzreignzBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Okay, first of all, the inverse of the additive identity is itself... 0 + 0 = 0, so, yeah... Now, let a be in Zm, where a is not equal to zero. Consider ma. since a is in Zm, a < m a  a < m  a m  a > 0, meaning ma is nonnegative, (positive, even) m < m + a m  a < m + a  a m  a < m, meaning ma is less than m. Thus, ma is nonnegative and is less than m, therefore ma is in Zm. Consider a + (ma) = a + m  a = m = 0(mod m) Thus, a + (ma) = 0(mod m) a + (ma) = 0, in Zm (ma) is the inverse of a. Thus we have shown that for any element a in Zm, there is an element (ma) such that a + (ma) = 0, and therefore, all elements in <Zm, +> have inverses :D

terenzreignzBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
And there you go, we've shown closure, associativity, existence of an identity element and existence of inverses, we can conclude that <Zm, +(mod m)> forms a group. (An Abelian group, too, but more on some other time, I guess)
 one year ago

terenzreignzBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I have to go now, work on the other one: <Zm, *(mod m)> But since we're having spoilers anyway, it's not a group :P The reason for that is for you to find... *cough*oneisthemultiplicativeidentity*cough*theresnothingyoucanmultiplytozerotogetone *cough*zerohasnomultiplicativeinverse *cough* LOL anyway Terence out :D
