Description

The java.math.BigInteger.mod(BigInteger m) returns a BigInteger whose value is (this mod m). This method differs from remainder in that it always returns a non-negative BigInteger.

Declaration

Following is the declaration for java.math.BigInteger.mod() method.

public BigInteger mod(BigInteger m)

Parameters

m − The modulus.

Return Value

This method returns a BigInteger object whose value is this mod m.

Exception

ArithmeticException − If m ≤ 0.

Example

The following example shows the usage of math.BigInteger.mod() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.math.*;

public class BigIntegerDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

      // create 3 BigInteger objects
      BigInteger bi1, bi2, bi3;

      bi1 = new BigInteger("-100");
      bi2 = new BigInteger("3");

      // perform mod operation on bi1 using bi2
      bi3 = bi1.mod(bi2);
   
      String str = bi1 + " mod " + bi2 + " is " +bi3;

      // print bi3 value
      System.out.println( str );
   }
}

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result −

-100 mod 3 is 2
