We use multiple arithmetic operation in python. such as +,-,*,/,%

here,

we use + is for addition of two numbers.

for example: 2+3 will perform addition and it will return 5 as a result.

3–2 will perform subtraction and it will return 1 as a result.

3*3 will perform multiplication and it will return 9 as a result.

6/2 will perform division and it will return 3 as a result.

now, when we see operator % in calculator we think that it will calculate percentage.

but here in programming language the % operator is called modulo operator.

This % operator will return reminder of division.

Syntax

x % y

For Example:

13%5 will return 3

To demonstrate this, let me take example of apples.

suppose, we have 13 apples and we want to make a group of 5.

from the above picture, we have divided our 13 apples in the group of 5 (because we have 13%5). here leftover Apples are 3.

so, we will get 3 as a answer.

we can find odd and even numbers with the help of %.

3%2 will return 1

2%2 will return 0

hence,

for example we have list of apples:

for apple in range(0,10):

if (apple%2) != 0:

print(apple)

Output:

1

3

5

7

9
