# How to use Modulo (%) operator in JavaScript

**by Sai gowtham1min read**

### Modulo operator helps us to find the remainder of the two numbers.

suppose we have two numbers 5 and 2 where `number 1 is dividend`

and `number2 is a divisor`

( `number 1 % number 2 = Remainder`

).

```
// 5 mod 2 = 1
5 % 2 = 1 // 1 is remainder
// 10 mod 2 = 0
10 % 2 = 0 //0 is remainder
//9 mod 3 = 0
9 % 3 = 0 // 0 is remainder
```

By using the modulus we can easily find the even numbers and odd numbers in the list.
