A float is short for a floating-point number. This type of number does not have a limit for the number of digits before and after a decimal point. In programming this data type is used for decimals. % is used to divide.

1.float- if we have to convert the value in decimal number , we should use float like, float(3) >>>3.0 It's usefull for some operations 2.% % is used to get the reminder of division without dividing the values like, 4%3 >>> 1 because,3*1 = 3 and 3 is closest value for 4 in 3's division. reminder = 4-3 =1

Float is any decimal number. And '%' is to divide two numbers, but it only shows you the remainder.
