Lesson 20, how to understand Modulo itself?


#1

OK, so I am doing lesson 20 of Javascript.

unfortunately I do not understand the Modulo.

[So if we do 23 % 10, we divide 23 by 10 which equals 2 with 3 left over. So 23 % 10 evaluates to 3.

More examples:

17 % 5 evaluates to 2

13 % 7 evaluates to 6]

Where does the answer 3, 2 and 6 come from? How to calculate it?

@webjumper41563,

+++++++++++++++++ for loop wrong FIZZ BUZZ condition in DIAGRAM
Javascript has the so-called Remainder-operator %
is actually a modulo-operator
and if used it will return the rest-value.

9%3 You read it as nine modulo three is zero, as 9 divided by 3 has NO rest-value.
22%6 You read 22 modulo six is 4, as 22 divided by 6 will leave you with rest-value 4
10%5 You read 10 nodulo five is zero, as 10 divided by 5 will have NO rest-value

In this section you have to figure out
(i%3 === 0 && i%5 === 0) to display FizzBuzz // if (imodulo 3 equals zero AND imodulo 5 equals zero)
(i%3 === 0) to display Fizz // else if (i modulo 3 equals zero )
(i%5 === 0) to display Buzz // else if (i modulo 5 equals zero )
AND
if none of the above display i //else display i

You will have to use an IF ELSE-IF ELSE-IF ELSE-statement
within a for-loop.

Hi! I have the same doubt as you, I've red the answers from @leonhard.wettengmx.n and still don't understand it. Could you explain it to me? Thanks
