Excel MOD Function

We can use the Excel MOD function if we want to get the remainder of two numbers after division. While this might seem challenging, this step-by-step guide will enable you use the MOD function to get the remainder of any two numbers after division.

Figure 1: Using the MOD function to get remainder after division

Generic syntax of the formula

=MOD (number, divisor)

Where;

  • Number – is the number to be divided
  • Divisor – number to divide with

Understanding the MOD function

This function is fundamental when it comes to getting a remainder after division.

This function is known to return a result in the same sign as the divisor.

In the event that the divisor is zero, then the MOD function will return a #DIV/0! Error.

Example

Figure 2: MOD function

Step 2: In cell D2, put the MOD function, i.e. =MOD(B2,C2)

Step 3: Press Enter key

Step 4: Copy the formula across the other cells.
