An advanced level version of Chinese remainder theorem.

The Chinese remainder theorem is the name of a theorem in abstract algebra, which, in its most general formulation, provides information about the structure of commutative rings. Its most common manifestation is that where the ring is the integers, in which case it is a theorem in modular arithmetic (see the main page for a discussion in this simpler context).
