Not what you're looking for?

Please see the file below about encoding a birthday.

For example the birthday is 250692, how to calculate?

Exercise 2: Encode your date of birth (format DDMMYY) using the public key:

n = 536813567

a = 7582663

(Use the correspondence 0 <-> 0, 1 <-> 1, ..., 9 <-> 9 and work in base 10 to encode this message.)
