i don't get the number% 3 == 0

i have problem understanding that the number divided by three might give zero

Hello, the sign '%' is not dividing, it is actually the remaining of the division, take for example :

7 / 2 = 3(int) (and the remaining is one)

7 % 3 = 1

4 / 2 = 2

4 % 2 = 0

Thank you so much !
