Yes Khamari
In Python this sign // is called the floor division and this % is the modulo operator
The floor division // operator will only provide your answer without remainder
The modulo % operator will only give you the remainder as you answer.
Just in the case of this
>>> 20 // 6 meaning how many times do 6 goes in 20. 6 will go in 20 3times remainder 2 but don't forget your answer will only be 3 because of this sign //
And as for this
>>> 1.25 % 0.5 meaning how many times do 0.5 goes in 1.25. answer = 2.5 remainder 0.25. Hey don't forget we say this sign only display the remainder as answer not the times it goes, therefore your answer will be displayed as 0.25 not 2.5
Hope you understand...?
