Let

$$a \equiv 1 \pmod{4}$$.

Find the value of

$$6a + 5 \pmod{4}$$

$$\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline && 6a + 5 \pmod{4} \\ &\equiv& 6a + 5 -4 \pmod{4} \\ &\equiv& 6a + 1 \pmod{4} \quad & | \quad a \equiv 1 \pmod{4} \\ &\equiv& 6\cdot 1 + 1 \pmod{4} \\ &\equiv& 7 -1\cdot 4 \pmod{4} \\ &\equiv& 7 -4 \pmod{4} \\ &\equiv& 3 \pmod{4} \\ \hline \end{array}$$
