Modulus operator for integers

Getting the remainder of an integer division using the modulus operator.

Learning Objectives

  • Learning to use the % or modulus operator.

Source Code

Code Understanding

int a=22,b=7;  //Two test variables initialised

Simple integer division with a as 22 and b as 7 should yield 3 as fractional portion would be removed in integer division.

Modulus operator % will yield the remainder. from 22/7 we will get a remainder of 1. % operator simply gives the remainder.


  • % operator doesn’t work on fractions. For that one can use the build library function fmod.

Suggested Filename(s): mod.cpp
