Let a and b be relatively prime nonzero numbers. For any given numbers m and n, the simultaneous congruences x = m mo d a and x = n mo d b are equivalent to a single congruence x = k mo d ab for some k. Proof. Th e assumptio n tha t a and b are relatively prim e mean s tha t their greates t commo n diviso r i s 1 , s o th e augmente d Euclidea n al gorithm find s solution s o f 1 -f ub = va an d 1 + xa = yb.

Thus, congruenc e mo d [a , b] i s the same as congruence mo d [a , b — a] when a < b and th e sam e a s congruenc e mo d [a — b, b] whe n a > b.

When a and c are relatively prime nonzero numbers, the order of a mod c is the smallest solution b of a b = 1 mod c.
