Or (in the interest of helping) you could also say that this way:

13 / 4

```
13 = (4 * 3) + 1
```

or more abstractly:

```
dividend = (divisor * quotient) + remainder
```

If we insist that *answer* is an integer. This is sometimes referred to as “Euclidean division” or “remainder division”. It is usually the first division that you learn in school, that the answer is a quotient and a remainder. If a teacher asked you in 2nd grade, “What is 13 divided by 4?”, you’d answer “4 goes evenly into 13 three times, with a remainder of 1”. The modulo operator (`%`

) is just shortcut to the remainder.

Another way to find it is:

```
const dividend = 13;
const divisor = 4;
const quotient = Math.floor(dividend / divisor) // 3
const remainder = dividend - (quotient * divisor) // 1
```

But if all you need is the remainder and don’t need the quotient, you can skip all that and just do:

```
const dividend = 13;
const divisor = 4;
const remainder = dividend % divisor // 1
```

It’s just a shortcut to the remainder - sometimes it’s all you need.
