    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

    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.

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

    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 non-negative 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, +>.

    -.- 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).

    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...

  53. terenzreignz

    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 m-a. since a is in Zm, a < m a - a < m - a m - a > 0, meaning m-a is non-negative, (positive, even) m < m + a m - a < m + a - a m - a < m, meaning m-a is less than m. Thus, m-a is non-negative and is less than m, therefore m-a is in Zm. Consider a + (m-a) = a + m - a = m = 0(mod m) Thus, a + (m-a) = 0(mod m) a + (m-a) = 0, in Zm (m-a) is the inverse of a. Thus we have shown that for any element a in Zm, there is an element (m-a) such that a + (m-a) = 0, and therefore, all elements in <Zm, +> have inverses :D

    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)
