comment What are the generators of $\mathbb{Z}_9^*$?
@JyrkiLahtonen Wouldn't that mean that every element in $\mathbb{Z}_9^*$ is a generator, save for $\overline{1}$?

comment What are the generators of $\mathbb{Z}_9^*$?
@JyrkiLahtonen But that seems contrary to what I was taught... but again I may have misunderstood

@coffeemath notice the headers in my table. Are the headers wrong? I listed all the elements $n$ such that $(n,9)=1$

comment What are the generators of $\mathbb{Z}_9^*$?
@coffeemath but I thought I had to take $2^4=16\equiv 7\mod{9}$

Where are my errors? I've gone over this twice and I got the same thing each time.

comment Solve for n: $\varphi(2n)=\varphi(3n)$
@lhf I think you may be right, but I don't know how to show it... My math above used the assumption that if $(3,n)=3$, then $\varphi(3n)=\varphi(3^2n)=\varphi(3^2)\varphi(n)=3(3-1)\varphi(n)$... but now I see that I didn't factor the $3$ out of the $n$, so I should probably have $\varphi(n/3)$ instead...

All I was taught was that it's multiplicative.

@labbhattacharjee Why is it not called "congruence" then, not "incongruence"?

comment What is an “incongruent” solution?
Does this mean that there are 11 different equivalence classes?

answered Let $ABC$ be a well-defined product of matrices. Suppose that $A,C$ are both invertible. Prove that $rank(ABC)=rank(B)$.
