Python Program for Find reminder of array multiplication divided by n

In this article, we will learn about the solution to the problem statement given below −

Problem statement

Given multiple numbers and a number input n, we need to print the remainder after multiplying all the number divisible by n.


  • First, compute the remainder like arr[i] % n. Then multiply this remainder with the current result.

  • After multiplication, again take the same remainder to avoid overflow. This is in accordance with distributive properties of modular arithmetic.

( a * b) % c = ( ( a % c ) * ( b % c ) ) % c

def findremainder(arr, lens, n):
   mul = 1
   # find the individual remainder
   for i in range(lens):
      mul = (mul * (arr[i] % n)) % n
   return mul % n
# Driven code
arr = [100,1,2,3,4,5,6,6,7]
lens = len(arr)
n = 11
print( findremainder(arr, lens, n))



All the variables are declared in the global frame as shown in the figure given below
