What is the difference between Forward Slash ' / ' and Modulo ' % ' ? (Pyhton Language)

I've found that the output of operation with both Forward Slash ' / ' and Modulo ' % ' have the same function which will produce floats. But why they are different? I still don't get the meaning. Somebody please help me to find out the answer
