Why is a number divisible by 3 if it equals 0?


#1

I thought it’d be number % 3 = / 0
because if a number is divisible by another, its quotient should have a remainder of 0.


#2

what does this mean?

Well, the modulo operator (%) calculates the remainder, if the remainder is zero, the number is divisible by the divider (3 in this case)


#3

number is said to be divisible by any number if the remainder comes out to be 0. eg. if 15 is divided by 3 remainder will be 0.
