1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data If I have some fraction, a/b, in Z subscript 5. (Z is an integer Field) How should I go about doing this? 2. Relevant equations I understand that (ab) mod n = ((a mod n)(b mod n)) mod n 3. The attempt at a solution Thus, I am tempted to say that (a/b) mod n = ((a mod n)/(b mod n)) mod n However, following that equation, there will be times where I will also end up with a fraction. exmaple, ((7 mod 5) / ( 24 mod 5)) mod 5 = (2/4) mod 5 = 1/2 So how should I go about solving 7/24 in Z5 or something similar? I have a feeling I'm missing something obvious.
