I'm looking over the solution for one of my assignment questions, which is the picture you see here.

A part of a solution says "Supose [a] = [a]^-1.  This implies that a^2 is congruent to 1 mod p."  I do not get how it transitioned between the steps.

Hey, can you post up the full solution? I just want to make sure I am interpreting the notation correctly before I answer your question.
