[tex]99999^{99} + 1[/tex](adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

As [tex]99999 \equiv[/tex]24[tex](mod \25)[/tex]

Can I say then:

[tex]99999^{99} + 1 \equiv[/tex]24[tex]^{99} + 1(mod \25)[/tex], or is it

[tex]99999^{99} + 1 \equiv[/tex]24[tex]^{99}(mod \25) + 1[/tex],

or are these two the same things?
