    Modulus operator

    I am a newbie and would appreciate it if someone could
    answer my question. Why won't the following code yield
    the remainder:

    amount = principle *(100 + rate) / 100;
    amount2 = amount/ 100;
    amount3 = amount % 100;

    Hi,
    there is a logical error in your program.
    If principle = 5 $ and rate =10%
    then amount= 5.5

    amount3=5.5 % 100 which is nothing but "0" .

    The remainder is nothing but the interest so why not calculate it directly as

    interest = principle x rate /100
    bye
