Surprised? Pretty cool, eh?

Now try it using high school algebra:

Not so magical anymore? Or is it even *more* mathematical? Go math!

(0 mod 4) + 10 = 2 mod 4

(2 mod 4) / 2 = 1 mod 4 (definition of division in modular arithmetic is tricky)

(1 mod 4) - 2 = 3 mod 4

Although modular division is kind of tricky, and there are two possible values x, such that 2x = 2 mod 4: the 1 mod 4 used above, and 3 mod 4, for which 3 mod 4 - 2 = 1 mod 4 = 5. So it can still work, but for only one of the possible outcomes of the division.
