Advertisements


Description

The java.math.BigInteger.remainder(BigInteger val) returns a BigInteger whose value is (this % val).

Declaration

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

public BigInteger remainder(BigInteger val)

Parameters

  • val - value by which this BigInteger is to be divided, and the remainder computed

Return Value

This method returns a BigInteger object whose value is this % val.

Exception

  • ArithmeticException - if val is zero

Example

The following example shows the usage of math.BigInteger.remainder() 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 remainder operation on bi1 using bi2
	bi3 = bi1.remainder(bi2);

        String str = bi1 + " % " + bi2 + " is " +bi3;

	// print bi3 value
	System.out.println("Remainder result for " +str);
   }
}

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

Remainder result for -100 % 3 is -1
