Welcome to 17 mod 5, our post which explains the mathematical operation 17 modulus 5.
This is also known as remainder of 17 divided by 5, and if you have been looking for 17 modulo 5, then you are right here, too.
Read on to find the 17 mod 5 value as well as the math in a nutshell.
17 Modulo 5
17 modulus 5 stands for the Euclidean division discussed, defined and explained in full detail on our home page.
The result of this modulo operation is:
17 is the dividend, 5 is the divisor (modulo), 3 is the quotient explained below, and 2 is called the remainder.
The division rest of 17 by 5 equals 2, and the value of the quotient is 3.
Proof: 17 = (5×3) + 2.
Note that there is no other quotient q than 3, and that there is no other remainder r than 2 which solves the equation 17 = (5×q) + r and 0 ≤ r < 5; r ∈ set of real numbers R; q ∈ set of whole numbers Z.
Now that you understand what 17 mod 5 means, it’s time to zoom in on how this modulo operation is actually calculated.
Step by step, easy and straight to the point.

How is 17 mod 5 Calculated?
To obtain 17mod5 conduct these three steps:
- Integer division (result without fractional part) of dividend by modulus: 17 / 5 = 3
- Multiplication of the result right above (3) by the divisor (5): 3 × 5 = 15
- Subtraction of the result right above (15) from the dividend (17): 17 – 15 = 2.
