REMAINDER(number,divisor)

• is a single number or set of numbers, and
• is any real number.

## Description

• This function gives the remainder of the number after dividing with given number. This is similar to function
• When we divide two integers we will get the result like this: with remainder . Here is the dividend, is the divisor, is the Quotient and is the remainder.So .
• This function will return the result as error when the value is 0.
• Suppose the value of and with same sign either '+' or '-',then the result is also displayed with the same sign.
• But if and are with different signs,one positive and other negative, then the result will have sign only.

## ZOS

• The syntax is to calculate remainder of the given numbers in ZOS is .
• and are any real numbers.
• For e.g.,REMAINDER(10,2),REMAINDER(50.2,-4)

## Examples

1. =REMAINDER(7,2)=1
2. =REMAINDER(-11,-3)=-2
3. =REMAINDER(75,5)=0
4. =REMAINDER(12,-4)=0
5. =REMAINDER(85,-9)=-5
6. =REMAINDER(-52,7)=4
7. =REMAINDER(0,9)=0
8. =REMAINDER(9,0)=NAN
9. =REMAINDER(5.5,2)=1.5

For an array of numbers/dividends, a table with remainder values is displayed as follows -

• REMAINDER(11..15,4)
Number Divisor MOD
11 4 3
12 4 0
13 4 1
14 4 2
15 4 3

• REMAINDER([66,34,21],8)
Number Divisor MOD
66 8 2
34 8 2
21 8 5
