I'm a student at the University of Calgary, in Computer Science (3rd year) and a former (and returning) intern at Microsoft. I mostly use Java, Python, PHP, and C#. I specialize mostly in Android and web, though this is far from the limit of my expertise.

My hobbies are watching anime, Japanese, Spanish, drawing, writing, physics, neuroscience, and psychology.

"... many abuses of the mod notation." That is absolutely the truth. If everyone would just use the notation correctly...

That iff statement is helpful, but you didn't quite get my question. Thanks for the answer anyway, though!

Interesting, my LaTeX-obsessed teacher used $=$, not $\equiv$, and there is not a big space before the $($. I transposed it exactly as she posted it. This is helpful, though, thanks!

comment Modular Arithmetic order of operations
Well, in the event of $M = 27$ and $K = 26$, they could both produce a different result; the first would be $(27 + 26) (mod\ 26) = 53\ mod\ 26 = 1$, the second would be $27 + (26 (mod\ 26)) = 27\ mod\ 26 = 27$. So to me, both do kinda make sense, which is why I ask... if you are certain, you can post that as an answer.
