Best Answer

In ordinary arithmetic, the resulting value will be from an infinite set of values but in case modular arithmetic, resulting value will be from a finite set of values.

e.g. in ordinary arithmetic, the sum of two integers, the result will be an integer in the range {..., -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, ...}

for modular arithmetic, the sum of two integers

like (a+b)mod n will be in the range {0, 1, 2, ... n-1}

What is the difference between Modular Homes and Manufacture homes?

Modular homes are not manufactured homes or mobile homes. All manufactured homes have a non-removable steel chassis.

In modular arithmetic must the modular always be greater than the remainder?

Yes, because that is how remainder is defined. If the remainder was bigger, you would subtract one (or more) modular values until the remainder became smaller than the modulus.

What is the difference between mobile and modular homes?

On a basic level, the difference between mobile and modular homes is quality. Mobile homes have not been built since 1976 because of stricter standards enacted by the US Department of Housing and Development (HUD). Modular homes are movable, but like site-based homes, have strict codes and standards to meet before being made for sale to a prospective home owner.

How can you use 4 9's to make 23?

It is impossible to make 23 from four 9's unless modular arithmetic is involved, in this case in mod 40, 57, 58, 59, 76, 697, 6538. I personally can't see any other way to obtain 23 other than modular arithmetic.

What is the difference between modular and pre-fab homes?

They are essentially equivelent in common usage, but technically, a pre-fab home has its components all built offsite and assembled at the building site while modular homes generally don't.

What is the difference between modular programming language and Structured Programming language and Object oriented programming language?

They are all modular, structured deals more with processes and object oriented deals with things (objects) and their responsibilities to each other.

What are finite sets?

They are sets with a finite number of elements. For example the days of the week, or the 12 months of the year. Modular arithmetic is based on finite sets.
