Java Math - floorMod() Method



The java.lang.Math.floorMod() method returns floor modulus of the arguments. The floor modulus of two arguments is same as modulo of two arguments. In special cases it returns the following:

  • If the second argument is zero, this method throws ArithmeticException.

Syntax

public static long floorMod(long x, long y)

Parameters

x Specify the dividend.
y Specify the divisor.

Return Value

Returns the floor modulus of the arguments.

Exception

Throws ArithmeticException, if the divisor y is zero.

Example:

In the example below, floorMod() method returns the floor modulus (remainder) of two arguments.

import java.lang.*;

public class MyClass {
 public static void main(String[] args) {
  System.out.println(Math.floorMod(11, 4));   
  System.out.println(Math.floorMod(10, 7));
  System.out.println(Math.floorMod(3, -1));     
 }
}

The output of the above code will be:

3
3
0
