## How to get the remainder of a division?

The remainder or modulus operator (`%`

) let you get the remainder of a division of a two numbers. This operator can be used to obtain a reminder of an integer or floating point types.

package com.javacoderanch.example.lang;
public class RemainderOperatorDemo {
public static void main(String[] args) {
int a = 10;
double b = 49;
//
// The reminder operator (%) gives your the remainder of
// an integer or floating point division operation.
//
System.out.println("The result of " + a + " % 5 = " + (a % 5));
System.out.println("The result of " + b + " % 9.5 = " + (b % 9.5));
}
}

Here is the result of the program:

The result of 10 % 5 = 0
The result of 49.0 % 9.5 = 1.5
