# 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

forward' / ' will give the quotient of operation
modulo will give the reminder of operation
for example 10/2 = 5
10%2=0(gives reminder)
