What about 5837 · 48 + 42, 090? We have seen that 5837 · 48 is congruent to 6. Using the sum-of-digits rule, we infer that 42, 090 is congruent to 4 + 2 + 0 + 9 + 0, which is 6 + 9. Because we are working modulo 9, we automatically know that 9 is congruent to zero, so 6 + 9 is congruent to 6. (Any time we see the digit 9, we can leave it out of our sum; any time we see some digits that add up to 9, such as 2 and 7, we can leave them out. )” We know that 5837 · 48 is congruent to 6, and that 42,090 is congruent to 6.

Jan. plain + key rem 1020 Feb. cyph. = Feb. plain + key rem 1020 and notices that by subtracting one equation from the other, she obtains Jan. cyph. − Feb. cyph. ≡ Jan. plain − Feb. plain(mod 1020 ) Because Eve knows the cyphertexts from January and February, she can subtract modulo 1020 to obtain the mod 1020 difference between the January plaintext and the February plaintext. That is, she obtains the mod-1020 representative of the difference between January’s advertising budget and February’s.
