"Modulo  graph paper" consists of a grid of $$m^2$$ points, representing all pairs of integer residues $$(x,y)$$ where$$0\le x . To graph a congruence on modulo \(m$$  graph paper, we mark every point  $$(x,y)$$ that satisfies the congruence. For example, a graph of  $$y\equiv x^2\pmod 5$$ would consist of the points $$(0,0),(1,1),(2,4),(3,4),(4,1)$$ .

The graphs of

$$y\equiv 5x+2\pmod{16}$$

and

$$y\equiv 11x+12\pmod{16}$$

on modulo $$16$$ graph paper have some points in common. What is the sum of the -coordinates of those points?

By the Euclidean Algorithm, the y-intercept is (7,18), so the answer is 7 + 18 = 25.

That makes sense, thank you!

can you show me the solution by any chance? Not just the answer!

5x + 2 = 11x + 12 (mod 16)

6x = -10 (mod 16)

6x = 6 (mod 16)

3x = 3 (mod 8)

Inverse of 3 in mod 8 is 3.

x = 1 (mod 8)

believe that the range for x are [0, m) based on my inferences. If I am wrong, let me know.

Then, all x values that satisfy this equation in those boundaries are 1 and 9.

Hence, the coordinates of the points are (1, 7), (9, 15).

Now, can you solve the question from here?

Parts that I believe were cut off?:

"where$$0\le x" Thank you for confirming :) "What is the sum of the -coordinates of those points?" ( So I need to know if we want to know the sum of the x or y coordinates. ) Alright, I think you're good to go.

So the answeris just 1 + 9?

Yes, the answer is 1 + 9 = 10.
