David Carroll thanks 👍. I was wondering why Ipang would say "Call me if it works!"

Ipang I understand Hth (hope that helps) but what is cmiiw?

# Quotient is the result you get from a division of two numbers. Example:
print( 500 // 2 ) # 250 is quotient
print( 1024 // 1000 ) # 1 is quotient
print( 1024 / 4 ) # 256.0 is quotient
# Remainder is the leftover value you get when a division operation cannot fully divide its operand by the divisor. Example:
print( 5 % 2 ) # 1 is remainder
# 5 / 2 yields 2, leaves 1 behind
print( 10 % 6 ) # 4 is remainder
# 10 / 6 yields 1, leaves 4 behind
Hth, cmiiw

We seem to digress and turn this thread into one about internet and chat abbreviations. But it's useful as there are so many AFAIK.

OMG Hahah that version of "cmiiw" is a big no no here in SoloLearn buddy 😁 a good invention though, admittedly 👍
Actually, Gordon asked me that too before, I was a bit surprised I thought everybody knew it like we've seen a lot of LOL, TBH , TY and all here ...
This is why this community unique, a simple "cmiiw" lits up curiosity like nowhere else 😁
Kudos #all

When 1.25 % 0.5 gives 0.25 it is correct, you see, 1.25 divided by 0.5 gives 2.
Because ... 0.5 * 2 = 1.0
And then we are left with the remainder from the division, which is 0.25 ...
Hth, cmiiw

starting to learn and found mistake / misunderstand in this topic of the training : 1.25%0.5 gives 0.25..... though when 1.25/0.5=2.5
or did i misunderstand the syntax ??
