Now let's generate a space fact while we learn a brand new operator called – drum roll please – the modulus.
The idea behind the modulus is to show you the remainder after you divide a number.
So, if you divide
13 / 5,
5 goes into
13 two times, and there will be
3 remaining. A modulus, denoted by a
%, would take
13 % 5 and return the remainder
How on Earth is this useful?
Let's ask a question a modulus can solve: What will the moon phase be one year from today?
