I was just curious. I'm trying to decipher an affine code and I understand that if you assume to letters you can decrypt the message but solving the system of equations is really throwing me for a loop.

Can mathematica solve a system of equations like for instance:
8a + b = 15 MOD 26
5a + b = 16 MOD 26
Solves for a = 17, b = 9?
