    What does x=pmodn mean where x,p,are integers and n is a natural number?

    Cookiemonster's statement is true as long as you assume that p< n, which is the most common use. More generally, "x= p, mod n" (actually "x congruent to p mod n" with the congruence sign having 3 lines instead of only two like "="), means that x-p is exactly divisible by n.
