You can use the code playground. The result will always the same as the numerator. 4%8 = 4 1%7 = 1 https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3622298/how-does-modulus-of-a-smaller-dividend-and-larger-divisor-work

I like to think of it like this: Q: What is the remainder of a smaller number divided by the larger number? A: It goes in zero times, with the smaller number left over. In other words, the smaller number will always be the remainder in a modulo division, like Denise Roßberg said.
