Section 4.1:
24.
a) a 43 (mod 23) and 22 a 0
43 mod 23 = 20
So, a mod 23 = 20
We have: -3 mod 23 = 20 and 22 -3 0
Thus, a=-3
b) a 17 (mod 29) and 14 a 14
17 mod 29 = 17
So, a mod 29 = 17
We have: -12 mod 29 = 17 and 14 -12 14
Thus, a=-12
c) a 11 (mod 21)
Section 3.3
16. A day has 24hours*60minutes*60seconds=86400 seconds
Operations in a second= 1second/10-11=1011
Operations in a day=864*1013
a) log n = 864*1013

86410

c) n2 =864*1013

n= 86410 929
Section 3.1
52. We use as many quarters (25 cents) as we can, then dimes (10 cents), nickels (5 cents) and
pennies (1 cent)
a)
89 cents
89 mod 25 = 14 cents
14 mod 10 = 4 cents
4 cents
b)
3 quarters
1 dimes
0 nickel
4 pennies
49 cents
49 mod 25 = 24 cents
