hi, this question is from the number properties book, 4th edition, ch. 10 q. 23
apologies if this is in the wrong thread
you're given background info, integer x has a remainder of 5 when divided by 9, integer y has a remainder of 7 when divided by 9
question: what is the remainder when 5x - y is divided by 9?
i solved this by picking numbers, but i think that it's probably inefficient.
i did 2 examples and made sure i got the same number
taking info from above, x has remainder of 5 so: x = 14, remainder is 5 5x = 70, remainder is 7
x = 23, remainder is 5 5x = 115, remainder is 7
i recall in chapter 10, it only mentions that if you multiply the remainders of x and y, it is equivalent to finding the remainder of xy, but i dont recall it saying that multiplying x by 5 is the same as multiplying Rx by 5 (remainder of x multiplied by 5)
could someone provide the explanation/proof/algebra of why this works?
