Answers to Questions

What is the modular Inverse?

The value of the inverse modular of \( a \) by the modulus \( n \) is the value \( u \) such as $$ u \equiv a^{-1} \pmod n \\ a u \equiv 1 \pmod n $$

How to calculate a modular inverse?

To calculate the value of the modulo inverse, use the extended euclide algorithm which find solutions to the identity of Bezout \( au + bv = \text{G.C.D.}(a, b) \). As here \( \text{G.C.D.}(a, b) = 1 \), only the value of \( u \) is needed.

The keyword invmod is the abbreviation of inverse modular.

What is a multiplicative inverse?

A multiplicative inverse is the other name of a modular inverse.
