The modulo symbol (%), or the modulus, is an operator which yes, returns the remainder of an equation. For example:
100 % 10 = 0
50 % 7 = 1
7 % 4 = 3
One very popular and beginner way to use the modulus, is telling whether or not an integer is even or not.
x % 2 = 0
Means even
x % 2 = 1
Means odd

+ 1

It returns the remainder

+ 1

En espaĂ±ol es el mĂłdulo.
