# Scala Double %(x: Float) method

• Last Updated : 02 Nov, 2019

In Scala, Double is a 64-bit floating point number, which is equivalent to Java’s double primitive type. The %(x: Float) method is utilized to return the remainder when the given Double value is divided by the float value.

Method Definition – def %(x: Float)

Returns – Returns the remainder of the division of this value by x.

Example #1:

 `// Scala program to explain the working ``// of Double %(x: Float) method``  ` `// Creating object``object` `GfG``{ ``  ` `    ``// Main method``    ``def` `main(args``:``Array[String])``    ``{``      ` `        ``// Applying %(x: Float) function``        ``val` `result ``=` `(``12.500001``.toDouble).``%``(``8``:``Float)``          ` `        ``// Displays output``        ``println(result)``      ` `    ``}``} `
Output:
```4.500000999999999
```

Example #2:

 `// Scala program to explain the working ``// of Double %(x: Float) method``  ` `// Creating object``object` `GfG``{ ``  ` `    ``// Main method``    ``def` `main(args``:``Array[String])``    ``{``      ` `        ``// Applying %(x: Float) function``        ``val` `result ``=` `(``16.50012``.toDouble).``%``(``13``:``Float)``          ` `        ``// Displays output``        ``println(result)``      ` `    ``}``}`
Output:
```3.500119999999999
```
