    manipulating the remainder of a float

    hi im having a problem finding any stuff on the remainder of a float and how to use and seperate it form the int part of a float ie 8700/1200=7 remainder300
    i was wondering if any one could post a few links or give me an idea of how this type of thing works.

    ok i just found something about using a % and a / to get the remainder?
    ive spent the last half hour searching about this but still cant find anything
    if using a % and a / will alow me to store the remainder of a sum then could some one please just explain how to include it in the sum thank you again

    int quotient = 8700/1200; // Quotient = 7
    int remainder = 8700 % 1200; // Remainder = 300
    You ever try a pink golf ball, Wally? Why, the wind shear on a pink ball alone can take the head clean off a 90 pound midget at 300 yards.

    % doesn't work on reals, you must use fmod().
    System: Debian Sid and FreeBSD 7.0. Both with GCC 4.3.
