# But why it is 0 - 5 remainder in modulus. If I in calculator 8 divide 9 I get remainder 8. Please can someone explain me?

Remainder is the part that gets left if you divide a number by another but care about only whole part in the answer.
For example say the question is 9 % 10,
9 ÷ 10 equals 0.90 . we care only about the whole part and not the decimal so 0 becomes quotient and as 0 × 9 equals 0, The part that remain, 9 is the remainder in this case.

Python 3 turns ints into floats during division i think.

I was actually trying to show you how Modulo and division operator works

no, remainder doesn't need to be from 0-5 only.

8 modulo 9
==========
Quotient = 0
Remainder = 8

you need to declare float or double because 3.33333.. is real number
ex float a=20/6
cout<<a
the output is 3.33333

exactly what you should get.
print(3.0 / 2) => 1.5 normal division as 2 × 1.5 = 3.0
print(3.0 // 2) => 1 floor division
print(3.0 % 2) => 1 modulo
as 1 × 2 + 1 = 3.0
in python 3

Now try print(3/2)

you will still get 1.5 if you do 3/2 .

Thank you all for help : )

20 % 6 is 2
but when I use this in calculator the remainder is 3. 20 / 6 is 3.3333

Go to the Python Playground, and type this: print(3.0/2)

D'lite I got 1.5
