Definition used:
Congruence.
Let m be an integer greater than 1. If x and y are integers, then x is congruent to y modulo m if x — y is divisible by m. It can be represented as $$\displaystyle{x}={y}\pm{o}{d}{m}$$. This relation is called as congruence modulo m.
Calculation:
It is known that, [x] + [y] = [x+y].
Then, the value of the expression becomes as follows.
$$\displaystyle{\left[{8}\right]}{\left[{7}\right]}={\left[{8}\times{7}\right]}$$
=[56]
Since $$\displaystyle{56}\equiv{2}\pm{o}{d}{6}$$. Thus [8][7]=[2] in $$\displaystyle{Z}_{{{6}}}$$.
Therefore, the value of the expression is [2].
