What Is Modulo?

Modulo is also known as Modulus or mod is the remainder after you divide a number with another number. If there is no reminder then the mod is zero.

The operator for Modulo is mod or % as used in programming. Here are two ways to calculate modulus.

How to calculate Modulo

Method 1: By ignoring decimals
To calculate X mod Y

Step 1: Divide X and Y
Step 2: Ignore decimals if any and multiply the answer by divisor Y (Round down)
Step 3: Subtract the answer from the second step from the divinded X

Example
How to calculate 1 mod 3

 Step 1: 7 Divide 6 equals 1.166666667 Step 2: Ignore decimals 1 1 Multiply 6 Equals 6 Step 3: 7 Minus 6 Equals 1 Therefore: 7 MOD 6 is 1

Method 2: Ignoring Whole numbers
To calculate X mod Y

Step 1: Divide X by Y
Step 2: Ignore the whole numbers and work with the decimals
Step 3: Multiply the decimal numbers by divisor Y

Example

How to calculate 7 mod 6

 Step 1: 7 Divide 6 Equals 1.166666667 Step 2: Ignore Whole numbers 0.166666667 Step 3: 0.166666667 Multiply 6 Equals 6 Therefore: 7 MOD 6 is 1

Practical Uses of Modulo

1. To determine whether a number is odd or Even
2. To convert seconds into hours, minutes and seconds
3. In programming to create a loop (do something every nth time)
