Mod Operator

Divides two numbers and returns only the remainder.

Syntax

number_1 Mod number_2

Parts

number_1
A numeric expression.
number_2
A numeric expression.

Instructions

The result is the remainder after number_1 is divided by number_2. For example, the expression 42 Mod 5 gives a result of 2.

The result has the same sign as number_1. Compared to Mod, the result of the related operator Rem gets the sign of its second number. But it can be easy to select the correct operator for the given conditions. The letter “M” is nearer to the number that gives the result its sign.
