Find the integer $$n, \;\;where \;\;\;0 \le n \le 5, \,\;\;such\; that \;\;n \;\equiv -3736 \pmod{6}.$$

-3736/6 = -622.6666666666666667 = -622+ - 4/6

n=-4mod6 = (-4+6) mod 6 =    2 mod 6

n=2

Edited: I made a super stupid careless error.

Find the integer $$n$$, $$0 \le n \le 5$$, such that $$n \equiv -3736 \pmod{6}$$.

$$\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline \mathbf{n} &\mathbf{\equiv}& \mathbf{-3736 \pmod{6} } \\\\ n +3736 &=& 6m \quad | \quad m\in \mathbb{Z} \\ n &=& 6m -3736 \quad | \quad m=\left\lfloor\dfrac{3736}{6} + 1 \right\rfloor \\ n &=& 6\left\lfloor\dfrac{3736}{6} + 1 \right\rfloor -3736 \\ n &=& 6\cdot 623 -3736 \\ n &=& 3738 -3736 \\ \mathbf{n} &\mathbf{=}& \mathbf{2} \\ \hline \end{array}$$
