Mod Calculator

Mod Calculator - a powerful tool designed for calculating the modulus operation. Whether you're a student studying mathematics or a programmer working with modular arithmetic, our Mod Calculator simplifies the process of finding remainders after division.

What is the Mod Calculator?

The Mod Calculator is a specialized tool for performing modular arithmetic, commonly denoted as 'a mod n' It calculates the remainder when an integer 'a' is divided by another integer 'n', providing a crucial operation in various mathematical and programming contexts.

Why to use a Mod Calculator ?

Mod Calculators help to find remainders easily when dividing numbers, crucial in programming for tasks like looping through elements or handling periodic events. It simplifies modular arithmetic calculations and is handy for various applications in math and computer science.

How to use a Mod Calculator ?

To use a Mod Calculator, enter two numbers and select the 'mod' or '%' function. The result will show the remainder when the first number is divided by the second, useful for tasks like programming or solving modular arithmetic problems.

What is the formula of the Mod calculator?

The calculator employs the following formula for modular arithmetic:

a mod n = a − n ⋅ ⌊a/n⌋

This formula ensures an efficient and accurate calculation of the modulus operation.

Note : The convention of using "." for multiplication in mathematics, rather than "x," ensures clarity and avoids confusion with the variable "x."

Examples:

Example 1:

a: 17

n: 15

Calculation:

17 mod 5 = 17- 5 ⋅ ⌊17/5⌋

17 mod 5 = 17 - 5 ⋅ 3

17 mod 5 = 2

Example 2:

a: 28

n: 6

Calculation:

28 mod 6 = 28 - 6 ⋅ ⌊28/6⌋

28 mod 6 = 28 - 6 ⋅ 4

28 mod 6 = 4

Example 3:

a: 10

n: 3

Calculation:

10 mod 3 = 10 - 3 ⋅ ⌊10/3⌋

10 mod 3 = 10 - 3 ⋅ 3

10 mod 3 =1
