MySQL MOD function is one of the Mathematical methods which is helpful in finding the Modulus. Or say it finds the remainder of different values. The syntax of the MOD is as shown below:
SELECT MOD(X, Y);
SELECT X % Y;
SELECT X MOD Y;
It divides the X with the Y value and returns the reminder.
MySQL MOD Function Example
The MOD function returns the remainder or Modulus of the given value. The following query shows multiple ways to use this.
SELECT MOD(25, 5);
SELECT MOD(25, 4), MOD(29, 9);
SELECT 29 MOD 9, 28 MOD 5, 29 % 5;
This Mathematical method also allows you to find the Modulus of column data. In this MySQL example, we are going to find the Modulus of Yearly Income column divided by 9.
SELECT EmpID, FirstName, LastName, Occupation, YearlyIncome, MOD(YearlyIncome, 9) AS Mod9Income, Sales, Sales MOD 5 AS Mod5Sales FROM customer;
