Re: question about primitive roots

Hello everyone,

I have a question about primitive roots.
I have a prime p and I want a primitive root g.

I know that znprimroot(79) will return a primitive root for the prime p
= 79 in the form Mod(3,79), meaning that if p=79, g=3 is a primitive

Is there anyway I can extract this "3" from the "Mod(3,79)" and set

Check 'lift()' (via "?lift").
