    Yep.

    I always make the mistake of thinking in terms of mod, instead of base. 🙄

    No, because 15 > 13. 9*6=2 mod 13.

    Actually, when I think about it, they are actually congruent. You just wouldn't say that that was the answer. You wouldn't say "9*6=15 mod 13", you would say "9*6=2 mod 13". Both statements are correct, one is just more correct than the other...

    I have a small garden shed that's 9 x 6. I store my lawn mower in it.
