<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);

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/>

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!
