<script type="text/javascript">

var a = 140;

var b = 26;

var division = Math.floor(a/b);

var reminder = a%b;

alert(division+" with a remember of "+reminder);

</script>

Ei ! :D i'm test your code but the rest or remember isn't correct, i write 131 / 26

= 5 and rest 0, the code back me rest remember 1 ... :D

Can you explain me how to do the 1%b :D Thanks guy for your time!!

Well, that is the correct answer!

<script type="text/javascript">

var a = 131;

var b = 26;

var division = Math.floor(a/b);

var remainder = a%b;

alert (division+" with a remainder of "+remainder); // 5 with a remainder of 1

</script>

Your English seems rather fractured. The word is remainder, not reminder or remember.

Actually, it was Sunfighter who used "remember" and "reminder" instead of "remainder".

Not sure they teach English in Missouri. <grin/>

Hey, this is the JavaScript forum, not the English forum. You got the important part right. <grin/>

a % b means *EXACTLY* "calculate the remainder when a is divided by b".

% is properly called the "modulo operator". What you called "rest" and we call "remainder" are both NOT correct mathematical terminology. "Modulo" is the correct terminology and % is indeed the modulo operator.

Incidentally, many languages use % as the modulo operator:

JavaScript

Java

C

C++

C#

PHP

and more.

An ok, so the name correct it's Modulo :D OK... however I had called "rest" because in Italian remainder is resto!
