Hello, so while calculating, I was wondering, what’s difference between / and %? Please do it pretty simple for I can understand

/ is division, % is the remainder of the division

14 / 4 = 3.5

14 % 4 = 2 because 14 = 4 * 3 + 2 (remainder)

Wait, so why x 3? I don’t get it

It looks like if it was a math.floor() lol!

Because that’s the mathematical definition of the remainder

`R = X % Y`

if and only if `X = Y * k + R`

, where `R`

is a smallest possible non negative integer and `k`

is an integer.
