Very simple. %

x = 1 % 2 print(x) #How come the output is 1? I am aware if the rule. But the normal division of 1/2 = 0.5 and 00 as the output. Thanks

1/2=1 If you're using ints, system won't use floats even in quotient part. So system doesn't know what the heck is decimal (.) Therefore, nmbr smaller or equal to 1 which is divisible by 2 is 0, so 2*0=0, 1-0=1. Hence, remainder is 1.

% is modulo or remainder operator. 1/2 = 0 with remainder=1. so, 1%2==1
