The remainder operator `%`

gives the remainder of the division of two numbers.

**Example**

5 % 2 = 1 because

Math.floor(5 / 2) = 2 (Quotient)

2 * 2 = 4

5 - 4 = 1 (Remainder)

**Usage**

In mathematics, a number can be checked even or odd by checking the remainder of the division of the number by `2`

.

17 % 2 = 1 (17 is Odd)

48 % 2 = 0 (48 is Even)

**Note**

The remainder operator is sometimes incorrectly referred to as the "modulus" operator. It is very similar to modulus, but does not work properly with negative numbers.

Set `remainder`

equal to the remainder of `11`

divided by `3`

using the remainder (`%`

) operator.
