Code #1 : Example for modulo() method

 # Ruby code for modulo() method    # loading BigDecimal require 'bigdecimal'    # declaring BigDecimal a = 42.1**13    # declaring BigDecimal b = -BigDecimal("10")    # declaring BigDecimal c = -(22 ** 7.1) * 10    puts "modulo example 1 : #{a.modulo(b)}\n\n"    puts "modulo example 2 : #{b.modulo(c)}\n\n"

Output :

modulo example 1 : 0.0

modulo example 2 : -0.1E2

Code #2 : Example for modulo() method

 # Ruby code for modulo() method    # loading BigDecimal require 'bigdecimal'    # declaring BigDecimal a = 12**12 - 27    # declaring BigDecimal b = BigDecimal('10')-(22 ** 7.1) ** 10    # declaring BigDecimal c = BigDecimal('-3')    puts "modulo example 1 : #{a.modulo(b)}\n\n"    puts "modulo example 2 : #{b.modulo(c)}\n\n"

Output :

modulo example 1 : -0.205121100730586399999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999991083899551761E96
