In python "//" is called as floor division.. It's work is to result quotient of integer format ie., it removes the decimal part of quotient and gives the result...
Here, 20//6 is 3 (perform manually once you'll get an idea)
The nest one "%" is called as modulo operator... It's work is to give remainder of the operation...
Here, 1.25 % 0.5 results in 0.25 (once do it manually)...
