What's the difference in the two notations? Should we not have $\equiv$ sign when relating an integer with an equivalence class?

comment Trying to calculate RSA decryption key
Is it not supposed to be $d \equiv e^{-1} \mod \phi(n)$ where $\phi(n)=(p-1)(q-1)$?

I know, that's why I mentioned that modular arithmetic helps you out in these scenarios.

comment Balanced Incomplete Block Design for magazine editor
It is correct. I thought you are actually interested in constructing a BIBD and not just get the parameters.

comment Balanced Incomplete Block Design for magazine editor
There are standard algorithms to solve CSPs and you can just apply them once you fit a CSP for the BIBD design you have. Else, you can just use MATLAB or MAPLE to enter the CSP and it will give you out an output. I hope this will help. I am sorry, I might have missed out your comment the last time you requested my help. One of the issue with BIBD is that for any set of parameters, there is no guarantee of uniqueness. So, you might have to do some trick if you using any mathematical tool. I have used that algorithm to generate a BIBD, so I am sure, it works!
