# Finding the remainder in swift :

In this tutorial, we will learn how to find the remainder in swift. Swift provides one operator *%* to find out the remainder. Let’s check how it works :

## Remainder operator :

*%* is used to find out the remainder. It is also known as *modulo* operator. This operator is used like below :

`first_number % second_number `

It will return the remainder after *first*number_ is divided by the *second*number_. For example :

```
print(4 % 2)
print(11 % 2)
print(1774 % 3)
```

It will print :

```
0
1
1
```

Note that we can use it only with integers, not with floating-point numbers.
