1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known dataplease consider the relation over the set of integers Z , given by m=n mod (p) where p is a positive integer . Prove that it is an equivalent relation. find the elements in the equivalent class of m. find the no of such equivalent classes. 2. Relevant equations 3.equivalent relation-proved by showing reflexivity, symmetry and transitivity. the equivalent class of m consists of elements of the type m +k p where k = 0,+/-1,+/-2...... but i am not able to think how to find the no of such classes. any help will be highly appreciated.
