ModuloCan you help me with these two problem #2 20121012 20:20:23
Re: ModuloHi; Where is called the floor function and is evaluated like this: and it always rounds down to the smallest integer. Let's do the first one: 23 mod 5 You are looking for r, the remainder. a = 23 and m is the modulo, in this case 5. Now So 23 mod 5 is 2. You try the second one. Let me know what you get. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4 20121012 22:21:10

Re: ModuloHi;
I see that now. He got the right answer too. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #9 20121013 02:21:18
Re: ModuloGuys,I have another problem,my brother says that 23 mod 5 will be 3 as Euclidean division states a=bq+r and the division will be 23=(5)*(4)+3. #10 20121013 03:15:27

Re: ModuloI am sorry to bug again but after you gave me the formula,i experimented a little and solution to 23 mod 5 results 43,is it correct #12 20121013 20:24:25

Re: ModuloYou're right,i missed a minus sign,thank you a lot,you guys taught me a lot of things today. #16 20121013 22:49:15
