Answers to Questions

What is the Chinese Remainder Theorem ?

The original problem is to consider a number of elements which we know the remainder of their Euclidean division.

If they are arranged by 3 there remains 2. If they are arranged by 5, there remain 3 and if they are arranged by 7, there remain 2. How many objects are there?

Consider a list of k coprimes integers \( n_1, ..., n_k \) and their product \( n = \prod_{i=1}^k n_i \). For all integers \( a_1, ... , a_k \), it exists another integer \( x \) which is unique modulo \( n \), such as :

$$ \begin{matrix} x \equiv a_1\pmod{n_1} \\ \ldots \\ x \equiv a_k\pmod{n_k} \end{matrix} $$

How to calculate chinese remainder?

Software accepts numbers written in couple (remander, modulus), but is may be easier to write lines of x = A MOD B

(2,3),(3,5),(2,7) => x = 23

x = 2 mod 3 x = 3 mod 5 x = 2 mod 7 => x = 23
