% = modulus

it will take the remainder of two ints.

example

12%7 = 5

(7 goes into 12 once , and there is a remainder 5 )

20%4 = 0

(4 goes into 20 five times, and there is no remainder )

1%3 = 1

(3 goes into 1 zero times, and there is 1 remainder )

hope that helpsthere are only 10 people in the world, those who know binary and those who dont

The % operator is the modulus, the / operatoris is the divisor and it is applicable to integer variables. It has to do with the remainder of a division.

In integer calculus you get the following:

7 / 3 = 2

Now

2 * 3 = 6

So there is a remainder

7 - 6 = 1

This can directly be calculated using the modulus operator

7 % 3 = 1

In your example

1 / 3 = 0

0 * 3 = 0

1 - 0 = 1
