## What is modulo operation?

- The
**Dividend**- The number being divided. - The
**Divisor**- The number that the dividend is being divided by

The modulo operation in mathematics also known as "**modulus**" or "**mod**," is used to find the **remainder** that results when one number is divided by another.

% is the sign used to represent the modulo operator in mathematics as well as in Python Programming.

Modulo operator takes **two operands**:

The result of the modulo operation is the remainder left over after dividing the dividend by the divisor.

## Examples of modulo operation

**Example 1**: Let us perform the operation **13 % 3**

The result is 1 because 13 divided by 3 will be 4 with a reminder of 1 as shown in the below working.

**Example 2**: Let us perform the operation **12 % 4**

The result is 0 because 12 divided by 4 will be 3 with a reminder of 0 as 4 is completely divisible by 4, see the below working.

## Program 1: Write a program in Python to find the modulo of two numbers

```
'''
Example 1:
Modulo Python Program
Author: Code2are.org
Date: 21-02-2023
'''
# Let's select a divisor as int number 3
divisor = 3
# Let's select a dividend as int number 13
dividend = 13
#Calculate mod
mod = dividend % divisor
print(f"{dividend} % {divisor} = {mod}")
```

**Output:**

13 % 3 = 1

```
'''
Example 2:
Modulo Python Program
Author: Code2are.org
Date: 21-02-2023
'''
divisor = 2
dividend = 10
mod = dividend % divisor
print(f"{dividend} % {divisor} = {mod}")
```

**Output:**

10 % 2 = 0

## Write a program to find the modulus of two numbers by taking user input using Python Programming.

```
'''
Example 3: User input
Modulo Python Program
Author: Code2are.org
Date: 21-02-2023
'''
# Input the first number i.e divisor
divisor = int(input("Enter the divisor number: "))
# Input the second number i.e divisor
dividend = int(input("Enter the dividend number: "))
# Calculate the modulo using the % operator
mod = dividend % divisor
# Print the result to the console
print("The modulo of", dividend, "%", divisor, "is", mod)
```

**Output:**

Enter the divisor number: 4

Enter the dividend number: 17

The modulo of 17 % 4 is 1

We have made use of the following Python functions:

**print()**: Built-in function to print a string on the console with f-strings formatting.**input()**: Built-in function to accept user input
