# What is 2 mod 3?

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

## Answer: 2 mod 3 is 2.

Let's find 2 mod 3

**Explanation:**

2 mod 3 equals 1, since 2/3 = 0 with a remainder of 2.

To find 2 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, 2.

Then, we subtract the Highest Divisor Multiple from the Dividend to get the answer to 2 modulus 3 (2 mod 3):

Multiples of 3 are 0, 3, 6, 9, etc. and the Highest Multiple of 3 equal to or less than 2 is 0.

Therefore, 2 - 0 = 2
