What would happen if you tried to calculate 2 % 10?

What happens when you try to calculate the remainder when the first number is smaller than the second? Would it result in a "no solution" or zero?

Well modulus divides and provides the left over value. So you would divide 2 / 10 which would equal 0 (not very relevant) then the left over number is 2. So 2 % 10 = 2
Here some other examples:
5 % 2 = 1
4 % 3 = 1
104 % 20 = 4
101 % 102 = 101

Yes. As Daniel (from 285) says, 10 "goes into 2" ZERO whole times, with two left over. As a side note, you can also satisfy your curiosity by opening up Eclipse and actually *trying* it. It's good practice using Eclipse, and you'll find out the answer for sure! System.out.println(2 % 10); // typed inside some class's main method
