More about chinese theorem

  1. Mar 1, 2004 #1
    hi all

    i've read that the chinese theorem can also be used to solve systems of n linear equations with n variables. Can somebody explain or say me what this method is or where i can find out more about it??

    Well, the internet has a lot.

    Here is a good site:http://www.math.sfu.ca/histmath/China/3rdCenturyBC/CRP1.html [Broken]
    The Chinese worked on this in the 3rd century. Interesting site.

    the chinese remainder theorem is a great theorem, provided that all of the congruencies are relatively prime and divisible by all of the equations. another method that is almost full-proof is iteration method.
