Getting a remainder
Listing 5 illustrates the use of the modulus operator to get and display the remainder produced by an integer division.
An integer quotient
This code performs an integer division to get and display an integer quotient. In this case, the remainder or fractional part is discarded.
Then the code in performs a modulus operation to get and display the remainder produced by the same integer division. In this case, the quotient is discarded.
The output produced by the code in Listing 5 is shown in Figure 3.
