It's all very well you doing these complicated methods, but you have to remember that average people are reading this and won't understand what you say! I'm a 17 year old Maths and Further Maths student and have never come across "mod" numers (modulo i believe)...I think that's university level! I think Eric's solution to the 13 problem and my solution to the 11 problem are the most user friendly. They may not be as elegant mathematically - but a darn more people understand what's going on!
