Given two integer N ans K, the task is to find sum of modulo K of first N natural numbers i.e 1%K + 2%K + ….. + N%K.

Examples : 

Input : N = 10 and K = 2.
Output : 5
Sum = 1%2 + 2%2 + 3%2 + 4%2 + 5%2 + 6%2 +
      7%2 + 8%2 + 9%2 + 10%2
   = 1 + 0 + 1 + 0 + 1 + 0 + 1 + 0 + 1 + 0
   = 5.
Recommended Practice

Method 1: 

Iterate a variable i from 1 to N, evaluate and add i%K. 

Below is the implementation of this approach:  

C++

// C++ program to find sum of
// modulo K of first N natural numbers.
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Return sum of modulo K of
// first N natural numbers.
int findSum(int N, int K)
{
    int ans = 0;
 
    // Iterate from 1 to N &&
    // evaluating and adding i % K.
    for (int i = 1; i <= N; i++)
        ans += (i % K);
 
    return ans;
}
 
// Driver Program
int main()
{
    int N = 10, K = 2;
    cout << findSum(N, K) << endl;
    return 0;
}

                    

Java

// Java program to find sum of modulo
// K of first N natural numbers.
import java.io.*;
 
class GFG {
 
    // Return sum of modulo K of
    // first N natural numbers.
    static int findSum(int N, int K)
    {
        int ans = 0;
 
        // Iterate from 1 to N && evaluating
        // and adding i % K.
        for (int i = 1; i <= N; i++)
            ans += (i % K);
 
        return ans;
    }
 
    // Driver program
    static public void main(String[] args)
    {
        int N = 10, K = 2;
        System.out.println(findSum(N, K));
    }
}

    # Iterate from 1 to N &&
    # evaluating and adding i % K.
    for i in range(1, N + 1):
        ans += (i % K);
 
    return ans;
 
# Driver Code
N = 10;
K = 2;
print(findSum(N, K));

    // Iterate from 1 to N && evaluating
    // and adding i % K.
    for(let i = 1; i <= N; i++)
        ans += (i % K);

Output : 

5


Time Complexity : O(N).

Auxiliary Space: O(1)

Method 2 : 
Two cases arise in this method.
Case 1: When N < K, for each number i, N >= i >= 1, will give i as result when operate with modulo K. So, the required sum will be the sum of the first N natural number, N*(N+1)/2.
Case 2: When N >= K, then integers from 1 to K in natural number sequence will produce, 1, 2, 3, ….., K – 1, 0 as result when operate with modulo K. Similarly, from K + 1 to 2K, it will produce same result. So, the idea is to count how many numbers of times this sequence appears and multiply it with the sum of first K – 1 natural numbers. 

Below is the implementation of this approach:  

C++

// C++ program to find sum of modulo
// K of first N natural numbers.
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Return sum of modulo K of
// first N natural numbers.
int findSum(int N, int K)
{
    int ans = 0;
 
    // Counting the number of times 1, 2, ..,
    // K-1, 0 sequence occurs.
    int y = N / K;
 
    // Finding the number of elements left which
    // are incomplete of sequence Leads to Case 1 type.
    int x = N % K;
 
    // adding multiplication of number of
    // times 1, 2, .., K-1, 0 sequence occurs
    // and sum of first k natural number and sequence
    // from case 1.
    ans = (K * (K - 1) / 2) * y + (x * (x + 1)) / 2;
 
    return ans;
}
 
// Driver program
int main()
{
    int N = 10, K = 2;
    cout << findSum(N, K) << endl;
    return 0;
}
