comment Congruences, elementary number theory
I don't see how you get that last line. $(a-b)=(\alpha k+ \beta)m$

comment Find all solutions to linear congruences
I'm following most for part $(a)$ except for a couple things. Do we know there are only $5$ solutions because the $gcd(10,15)=5$? And also, what do you mean adding $3$ successively? Adding $3$ to $x=2$? So you're saying $x=5$ and $x=8$ are also solutions?

comment Find all solutions to linear congruences
I think that is what I was trying to show for part $(a)$. I'm just not sure where to go afterward.

Sorry, yes meant to say $d|m$.
