Modular arithmetic systems?
Posted:

I am just wondering if this is the right name for it or if they are called something else. Take a look at this:
17x + 5y = 3 (mod 4) 12x  4y = 6 (mod 9)
Now, I don't know if this is solvable, cause I just made it up. But I'm so frustrated, cause I thought they where called "modolar systems", and yesturday when I made a search at it; I got no hits that made any sense. A while ago, I found a pdf describing the problem and how to solve them, now it's gone and i can't find it again. :(
