# Modulo or Remainder Operator in Java

Modulo or Remainder Operator returns the remainder of the two numbers after division. If you are provided with two numbers, say A and B, A is the dividend and B is the divisor, A mod B is there a remainder of the division of A and B. Modulo operator is an arithmetical operator which is denoted by %.

**Syntax:**

A % B Where A is the dividend and B is divisor

**Example:**

Input: a = 15, b = 6

// 15%6 means when we divide 15(numerator) by 6(denominator) we get remainder 3//Output: 3Input: a = 16, b = 4Output:0

**Approach:**

- Take Dividend and Divisor from the user.
- Create an integer variable and assign it with A % B expression.
- Print that variable.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## Java

`// Implementation of Modulo or Remainder Operator in Java` `import` `java.io.*;` `import` `java.util.*;` `class` `GFG {` ` ` `public` `static` `void` `main(String[] args)` ` ` `{` ` ` `// Dividend` ` ` `int` `a = ` `15` `;` ` ` `// Divisor` ` ` `int` `b = ` `8` `;` ` ` `// Mod` ` ` `int` `k = a % b;` ` ` `System.out.println(k);` ` ` `}` `}` |

**Output**

7

**Time Complexity : **

Modular function usually takes Constant time / O(1) time like other arithmetic operations.
