The solution of $8x+1 \equiv 5$ (mod $12$) is $x \equiv a$ (mod $m$) for some positive integers $m \geq 2$ and $a Jun 18, 2021 ### 4+0 Answers #1 +367 +1 Already been answered I believe: https://web2.0calc.com/questions/the-solution-of-8x-1-5-mod-12-is-x-a-mod-m-for-some I'm back babyyyyyy Jun 18, 2021 #2 0 I meant to type The solution of$8x + 1 \equiv 5$(mod$12$) is$x \equiv a$(mod$m$) for some positive integers$m \geq 2$and$a < m$. Find$a+m$Guest Jun 18, 2021 #3 +367 +2 The solution gives both A and M. I suggest you read over the solution, heureka did an amazing job on it :) Badada Jun 18, 2021 #4 0 Well, it seems the solution is that$m$is nonnegative and is always a multiple of$3$. And$a = -1$, would this mean the answer would be$2$or$5$or$8\$ etc.. ? Which of these is correct?
