**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)
