There is a solution that is already provided.

I ask that you check the solution correctness, and clarity.

If there is a proof, please do your best to explain the proof clearer, with words.

If you find an error , mistake, or something could be "more elegant" than please rework the entire solution.


1. No programming
2. Show all steps
3. Explain your solution process in words
4. Proofs need to be explained primarily in words. If there is a lot of algebra, explain the process in words as well.

For every nonnegative integer n, there are unique nonnegative integers i and j such that


To see this, consider division of n by 43, and let i and j denote the quotient and the remainder, respectively:

j is an element of Z43, and n is said to be congruent modulo 43 to j, which we could express by saying that n is EQUIVALENT to j (modulo 43). (In YOUR notation, we would say that "n = j in Z43.")
