I have been given $N=2021$ and $E=5$. I am to encrypt the the word 'he' where h is 18 and e is 15. Then I am to find D, and k, and decipher the encrypted message.
My first question is whether i do h and e separately or if i consider the message $1815$?
So far, I started with my message being $1815$. I found the totient of $2021$ to be $1932$. Then: $$1815^5(\mod2021)=913$$ Does this mean that the encrypted message that I would send to the receiver is 913?
To find D, i used $ED \equiv 1 \mod1932$ which gave me $D=773$ but this seems very high so I think I may have gone wrong somewhere?
