I know how to get the inverse of 3(mod 7), and thats about it.
What is the procedure to solve this?

What is the remainder of 3 when you divide it by 7?

Ask yourself what number, x, times 3 mod 7 will give you 4?
3x ≡ 4 mod 7 # 4 mod 7 equals 4
3x mod 7 = 4 # what x makes this true
x = 6

Sorry, I didn't see the congruence in the title! Make sure to include these things in your post as well.

I think I did . Sorry if I wasnt clear enough.
Oh! BTW, how do you set this mathematical form. My brain in freezing; logarithm of 7 to the base 2 modulo 19

Modular arithmetic is limited to the integers. Remember that log2(7) returns a real number.
