I have a cryptography assignement and  I have to find Bob's secret key based on Euclid algorithm. In my Lecture Notes is written:
Given two numbers (r,s), the algorithm outputs a number x such that r*x=1(mod s)

I'm using Java to write the app to solve this. I have r and s and I have to find x.
There is a method in Java to do this, or can anyoane to give any ideas?

you'll have to figure the solution yourself, but feel free to ask for "pointers"

Here's an explanation of the Euclid algorithm: http://www.maths.lse.ac.uk/Courses/MA314/euclid.pdf. Based on this, you should be able to understand the principle, and to create your program. The former is more important: if someone gives you a piece of code, and you present it, you'll probably be asked why it produces the correct output; if you start stuttering away, chances are this will not be recognized as a valid solution ...
