My Solution for "Give an example to show that $a^{k} \equiv b^{k} \pmod {n}$ and $k \equiv j \pmod {n}$ need not imply that $a^{j} \equiv b^{j} \pmod {n}$."

Background

All theorems, corollaries, and definitions listed in the book's order:

**I will only use theorems or facts that are proved before this question**. So, you will not see that I quote theorems or facts from the later chapters.

## Question
