Quotient: A quotient is the result of performing a division. This is nothing that is related to python only, this is simply math. This is the modulus operator. It does perform a division, but does not show the quotient but the remainder. 10 % 4 gives 2 10 / 4 gives 2. so 4 * 2 gives 8 and there is a remainder of 2 upto 10. 10 / 3 = 3 1 Dividend / Divisor = Quotient Remainder

Quotient, floor division //, will perform a division, like true division /, but, floordivision will always evaluate to a whole number (exception: zerodivision). In simpliest form floor division is just a division that results in a whole number: 1 // 10 = 0 7 // 2 = 3 99 / 10 = 9 10 / 3 = 3 Remainder, modulus %, will also perform a floor division, but it will only care what will be left by all succcessful floordivisions. Remainder can be useful when you want to keep a number between 0 and any number, like in n % 10 result will always stay between 0 and 10, it might not be best way to do so, but it is easy and short: 1 % 10 = 1 2 % 10 = 2 3 % 10 = 3 9 % 10 = 9 10 % 10 = 0 11 % 10 = 1 0 % 10 = 0 -1 % 10 = 9
