### Operator Mod (Modulus)

Finds the remainder from a division operation

**Syntax:**

**Usage:**

`
`

*result*=

*lhs*

**Mod**

*rhs*

**Parameters:**

*lhs*
The left-hand side dividend expression.

*rhs*
The right-hand side divisor expression.

**Return Value:**

Returns the remainder of a division operation.

**Description:**

**divides two**

`Operator Mod`(Modulus)`Integer`expressions and returns the remainder. Float numeric values are converted to

`Integer`by rounding up or down.

Neither of the operands are modified in any way.

This operator can be overloaded for user-defined types.

**Examples:**

Print 47 Mod 7

Print 5.6 Mod 2.1

Print 5.1 Mod 2.8

Print 5.6 Mod 2.1

Print 5.1 Mod 2.8

Output:

5 0 2

This is because:

- 47 divided by 7 gives a remainder of 5
- 5.6 is rounded to 6 while 2.1 is rounded to 2. This makes the problem 6 MOD 2 which means 6 divided by 2 which gives a remainder of 0
- 5.1 is rounded to 5 while 2.8 is rounded to 3. This makes the problem 5 MOD 3 which means 5 divided by 3 which gives a remainder of 2

**Dialect Differences:**

- In the
*-lang qb*dialect, this operator cannot be overloaded.

**Differences from QB:**

- None
