\ integer division
Mod modulus (remainder)
The last two operators may be new to you. When you use the integer division operator, the two numbers are divided and the result (minus any remainder) is returned - always a whole number. The modulus operator divides two numbers together and returns the remainder.
When performing calculations, the computer will follow the BODMAS rules of mathematics regarding the priority of operators.
* / \ Mod
Operators with equal priority are calculated from left to right. Therefore,
3 + 5 * 7 = 38
(3 + 5) * 7 = 56
