Use an appropriate function using Mathcad to find the **remainder** when

12345678981129 is divided by 5518.

Can anybody help in this?

Re: Congruences, Divisibility Test

Thxs, Sir...

As for trunc and floor, I don't really understand. It don't seems to give the right answer to the question by using trunc and floor.

I will practice on it and figure it out...

Re: Congruences, Divisibility Test

Sir,

It seems like = sign is not showing the right answer for some other questions.... Symbolic processing is more appropriate.

Thxs again.

Yes. For large integers (more 15 digits), the numeric processor will have limitations on how many digits it can store and, consequently, on how accurate the divisions will be, even with smaller integers as the divisions may not have sufficient (binary) digits to be exact. The symbolic processor should be able to handle reasonably large numbers ...
