Mysql Mod

                         

Mysql Mod (a,b) is performed to return remainder  when b is divided by a.

Incase you use MOD(a, 3) you get 1 for even numbers and 0 for odd numbers.

If you use MOD(a, 2) you get the last digit of the number a.

Understand with Example

The Tutorial illustrate an example from Mysql Mod. To understand and grasp the example we create a table oddeven with required fieldnames and datatypes respectively.

Query for creating table named oddeven:

    -> (
    -> a int(30),
    -> b int(35));
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.08 sec)

Query for inserting data into table named oddeven:

The Query insert into is used to add the records or rows to the table 'oddeven'

mysql> insert into oddeven
    ->   values
    ->   (11,23),(23,23),(24,23),(25,25),(62,27),(72,29);
Query OK, 6 rows affected (0.02 sec)
Records: 6  Duplicates: 0  Warnings: 0

|   62 |   27 |
|   72 |   29 |
+------+------+
6 rows in set (0.00 sec)

mysql> SELECT b MOD a from oddeven;
+---------+
| b MOD a |
+---------+
|       1 |
|       0 |
