# What is 1 mod 3?

The mod or modulus or modulo is the remainder after dividing one number by another.

## Answer: 1 mod 3 is 1.

Let's find 1 mod 3.

**Explanation:**

1 mod 3 equals 1, since 1/3 = 0 with a remainder of 1.

To find 1 mod 3 using the modulus method, we first find the highest multiple of the divisor, 3 that is equal to or less than the dividend, 1.

Then, we subtract the highest multiple from the dividend to get the answer to 1 mod 3.

Multiples of 3 are 0, 3, 6, 9, etc. and the highest multiple of 3 equal to or less than 1 is 0.

Therefore, 1 - 0 = 1.

### Thus, 1 mod 3 is 1.
