If we divide 1.25 by .5 than, we can write: 1.25= .5*2(here .5*2=1)+.25 (here .25 is remainder, here further division approaches not followed as normal mathematical process follows, in normal mathematical process, we can write 1.25/.5 = 2.5) hence, 1.25 divided by .5, quotient is 2 and .25 isn't divided by .5 so it is remainder. above term is expressed by modulus sign (%),where % shows only remainder,not shows quotient. it is expressed by 5%2 = 1 11%4 = 3 5%3 = 2 3%5 = 3 6%5 = 1 12%7 = 5 2%2 = 0 1.25%.5 = .25

I made a function that calculates the remainder. It will give the same output as x%y. # works for positive numbers def remainder(x, y): z = x i = 1 while z >= y: z = x - (y * i) i += 1 return z x = 57 y = 6 u = remainder(x, y) print (u) v = x % y print (v)

remainder means the value which is remain left after division it also called modulos operator (%) ex:- 5%2=1 10%2=0 division 5/2=2 10/2=5
