The blog post on Modulo Arithmetic has Wilson's Theorem as Test Yourself (*) 5. That gives you the statement, and you should work out how to prove it form the hints.

There is a blog post I read on Brilliant on modulo arithmetic, the test yourself questions ramp up toward using Wilsons theorem.

@Jun Arro Estrella The Brilliant blog no longer exists. However, there is a great wiki page about Wilson's Theorem, as well as a general page about modular arithmetic. – Eli Ross Staff · 1 year, 6 months ago
