A^n Mod (B + C) 2. B^n Mod (A - C) 3. C^n Mod (A - B) 4. (B^n + C^n) Mod A 5. (A^n - B^n) Mod B 6. (A^n - C^n) Mod C Answer believe it or not is NO. There are such sets of three integers. Before I reveal what they are, see if you can find them. Last edited by skipjack; October 31st, 2018 at 06:41 AM.
