Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1choose 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is 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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Once 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1+ here is + modulo m, ok

terenzreignz

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay, 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, +>.

Best 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).

terenzreignz

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Never 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)

Zaara

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why ma??? i dnt get it...

terenzreignz

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, 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...

terenzreignz

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay, 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1And 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)

terenzreignz

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I 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
