is there a function that determines if a number is divisible by 3 or 5? to be used in fizzbuzz?
The modulus operator % returns the remainder after division. If the remainder is 0 then the number is divisible.
15%5 = 0 Fifteen is divisible by five
15%3 = 0 Fifteen is divisible by three
11%5 = 1 Eleven divided by five has a remainder of one
11%3 = 2 Eleven divided by three has a remainder of two
So for fizzbuzz you'll be checking if modulo remainders are 0 for 3 and 5
