TI-84+SE with TI-OS 2.53 MP

2 byte

The remainder( function divides the first number given by the second number, and returns the remainder similar to the modulus. This command is only available if you have the TI-84+ Silver Edition and the new 2.53 MP operating system on your calculator. This command can be used both on the Home screen and when programming.

See the code segment below for an example:

remainder(30,7)

This returns a value of 2 because 30 divided by 7 has a remainder of 2.

# Compatability

As said earlier this command only works on a TI-84+ Silver Edition with the 2.53 MP OS, so this will not work on earlier OSes. To avoid non-portability, use the following code.

BfPart(A/B instead of remainder(A,B

Fpart is a command that works in more OSes and more models. They also are the same size (5 bytes), as long as B is one byte

# Error Conditions

**ERR:DIVIDE BY 0**occurs if you try to input 0 as the divisor.**ERR:DOMAIN**occurs if the divisor or dividend is either negative or less than 0**ERR:SYNTAX**occurs if the divisor or dividend is a symbol, or character or non-real number**ERR:DATA TYPE**occurs if the divisor or dividend is not a number, (i.e. text)
