Modular Division Operator
Python Modular Division Operator takes two operands, one on the left and other on the right, and returns the remainder when the left operand is divided by the right operand.
The symbol used for Python Modular Division operator is
Following is the syntax of Modular Division Operator in Python.
result = operand_1 % operand_2
operand_2 are numbers and the result is the remainder when
operand_1 is divided by
Example 1: Modular Division of Integers
In this example, we shall take two integers, divide one with another, find the remainder of this division operation, and print the result.
a = 13 b = 5 result = a % b print('Remainder :', result)
Remainder : 3
Example 2: Modular Division of Floating Point Numbers
We can compute the remainder of division of floating point numbers. In the following example, we initialize two floating-point numbers, and find result of Modular Division done using these floating-point numbers.
a = 13.8 b = 5.1 result = a % b print('Remainder :', result)
Remainder : 3.6000000000000014
In this tutorial of Python Examples, we learned what Python Multiplication Arithmetic Operator is, how to use it to find the product of two or more numbers.
