not modulo but something else

for the value 7.6666, we called the int and it returned 7. The modulo returned 3. but say you only wanted to return .66666 part? what would I enter?

For example, 23/12 = 1.91666667 but I just want to return the .91666667? handy when working with degrees minutes and seconds.

Just take whatever answer you have and find modulo of 1:

7.6666 % 1 = .6666

1.91666667 % 1 = .91666667

There would be some rounding errors, for instance 1.91666667 % 1 would actually give you .9166666699999999 but I this is probably what you're looking for.
