# Mod= Operator

Divides the value of a variable by the value of an expression, then changes the variable to the remainder.

## Syntax

```
variable Mod= expression
```

## Parts

`variable`

- A numeric variable or property.
`expression`

- A numeric expression.

## Instructions

The two statements that follow operate the same.

```
variable Mod= expression
variable = variable Mod expression
```

Because `Mod=`

comes from `Mod`

, the sign of the variable (positive or negative) does not change.
