This is a tricky concept. The way it works is that if you use the two slashes // it will divide your numbers without leaving a remainder. For example if you if you do 9//3 your output will be 3 If you do 10//3 your output will still be 3 11//3 your output will also be 3. Now once you get to 12//3 your output will be 4. 13//3 also 4. Basically it divides it and cuts off all but the whole number. Using the % just figures out what the remainder is and then it only lists the remainder. So if you do 9%3 your output would be 0 10%3 your output would be 1 11%3 your output would be 2 12%3 your output would be back to 0. For % all you are going to have left is the remainder. I hope this has been helpful to some of you.
