    Maths problem

    Hi

    I've come accross a maths thing I have not seen before and can't seem to find it on the internet anywhere so I thought I would ask here.

    a > (a%b)

    I know its asking if a is greater than (a%b) but what does the (a%b) part mean ?

    Thanks for any help.

    The result of a%b is the remainder of a/b.

    if they're both int values and a=5 and b=2 then a%b=1
