## Modular Arithmetic...

Asked by:

How do I use msolve to solve y^2 + y - 11=0 in Zp for all primes p with 41=< p =<107 ?

Also, using the results make a conjecture describing the primes p for which there are solutions to y^2 + y - 11 = 0 in Zp

This was what I did.

41<=p<=107

msolve(y^2 + y - 11=0, p)

but I received this error, no implementation of msolve matches the arguments in call, msolve(y^2 + y - 11=0, p)

Any help is appreciated. Thanks

## Calculating Collatz's Conjecture ...

Asked by:

Hi everyone, I'm trying to print out Collatz's Conjecture's steps for any given value with the following code but it takes forever and prints nothing. Any idea on how I can get it working ?

checkCollatzValue:=proc(val) local res, remaining;
while res <> 1 do
remaining = irem(val, 2); remaining;
if remaining = 0 then res = val / 2; else res = val * 3 + 1; fi;
res;
od;
end proc;
