I dont understand how modulo actually assigns the group team that a person would be in.

in this exercise the task is to use modulo to determine which team I would be in. However, modulo is just a operation that gives the remainder. Meaning that the information given shows simply that the number of individuals to choose from is not evenly divisible by the number of teams.

my_team = 27 % 4

print(my_team)

my_team2 = 26 % 4

print(my_team2)

my_team3 = 28 % 4

print(my_team3)

i understand it to mean that with 27 people and 4 teams there will be three people left over without a team.

26 people and 4 teams = 2 people without a team.

but 28 people and 4 teams = 0 people without a team.

am I missing something or is this question worded poorly?
