MySQL's MOD(~) method returns the remainder of N divided by M.

Syntax

SELECT MOD(N, M);

SELECT N % M;

SELECT N MOD M;

Parameters

1. N | number

The numerator for division.

2. M | number

The denominator for division.

Return value

The remainder of N divided by M.

Examples

Basic usage

To return 7 modulo 5:

SELECT MOD(7, 5);
+-----------+
| MOD(7, 5) |
+-----------+
| 2 |
+-----------+

We return 2 as it is the remainder when we divide 7 by 5.

To return -11 modulo 1.50:

SELECT -11 % 1.50;
+-----------+
| 11 % 1.50 |
+-----------+
| -0.50 |
+-----------+

Zero denominator

Using denominator of 0 returns NULL:

SELECT 10 MOD 0;
+----------+
| 10 MOD 0 |
+----------+
| NULL |
+----------+
