Python supports a wide range of arithmetic operators that you can use when working with numbers in your code. One of these operators is the modulo operator (
%), which returns the remainder of dividing two numbers. Modular operations are useful to check if a number is even or odd, simplifying cycling through data, and doing non-decimal based units conversion.
In this course, you’ll learn:
- How modulo works in mathematics
- How to use the Python modulo operator with different numeric types
- How Python calculates the results of a modulo operation
- How to override
.__mod__()in your classes to use them with the modulo operator
- How to use the Python modulo operator to solve real-world problems
The code in this course was tested with Python 3.9.0,
% has not change much and older versions should be compatible.
