## Proposition: Addition, Subtraction and Multiplication of Congruences

Let $a,b$ be integers and $m > 0$ be a positive integer. Then the addition $”+”$, subtraction $”-”$ and multiplication $”\cdot”$ operations of the congruence classes $a(m)$ and $b(m)$ are well-defined, setting

$$\begin{array}{rcl} a(m)+b(m)&:=&(a+b)(m),\\ a(m)-b(m)&:=&(a-b)(m),\\ a(m)\cdot b(m)&:=&(a\cdot b)(m).\\ \end{array}$$

and applying the addition, subtraction and multiplication of integers.
