Modulo Operator

In this example we shall show you how to use the modulo operator. The modulo operator is an arithmetic operator that is used to divide one operand by another and return the remainder as its result.

    You use the modulo operator to get the remainder of the division between an int variable and 10 and a double variable and 10,

as described in the code snippet below.

package com.javacodegeeks.snippets.basics;

public class ModuloOperatorExample {

	public static void main(String[] args) {
		int i = 81;
		double d = 48;
		System.out.println(i + " mod 10 = " + i%10);
		System.out.println(d + " mod 10 = " + d%10);



81 mod 10 = 1
48.0 mod 10 = 8.0

This was an example of how to use the modulo operator in Java.
