Because is 0 with a remainder of 2.
Hi,
Why is it (for example) that 2 mod 5 is 2, not 0? Modulo is just the remainder of (in this case) dividing 2 by 5, and since it doesn't divide as a whole number, it just makes sense to me that it should be 0. Would anyone mind explaining why it doesn't work like this?
Thanks!
