- Addition & Subtraction in Modular Arithmetic

The diagram above shows addition in **modulo 6** in which an element on the extreme left is added to an element on the top row, in that order. You will observe that the first column on the extreme left and the top row contain the same set of integers.

### Example 5.2.1:

\( \scriptsize 3 \: \bigoplus \: 2 \)

**Solution**

Look for the number 3 on row 4 and the number 2 on column 3, they intersect at number 5.

i.e. \( \scriptsize 3 \: \bigoplus \: 2 = 5\:(mod\:6) \)

In the same vein, subtraction can be considered as the inverse operation of addition. So, in mod 6, we can use the addition table to work out subtraction:

### Example 5.2.2:

\( \scriptsize 2 \: \circleddash \: 5 \)

**Solution**
