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 |+----------+ ```
