Please help me prove the following theorem: This theorem apparently holds when $\displaystyle p$ is prime, and $\displaystyle a $ is NOT a multiple of $\displaystyle p$. If, $\displaystyle ab = ac $ $\displaystyle mod(p)$ Then $\displaystyle b = c $ $\displaystyle mod(p)$

When is $a$ invertible? I.e. can you find an $x$ such that $ax=1$ mod(p)?

The standard notation, for example, $\displaystyle ab \equiv ac \pmod p$, is preferred.

What I meant was "preferred on this website".
