# True or False

correct me if I'm wrong but if res give us the remainder figure then 8/5 is 3 because 5 can only go into 8 once and the remaining number from 5 To 8 is 3 hence the remaining (res) is 3. correct me if I'm wrong

combine them, maybe like this
x = 8/5;
y = 8%5;
convert x and y to string then print x + "r" + y

if you mean only the remainder its true.
can be said like this
8/5 is 1 /integer division
8%5 is 3 / remainder

Okay in java script terms I get that. on paper it's 1r3 that's 1 remainder 3
under the calculation of java script the modolus calculation is 3 but for just the integer which cancels the remainder number that would be 1 under the / method.
