# Modulus of two float or double numbers

Given two floating point numbers, find remainder.

Examples:

```Input : a = 36.5,
b = 5.0
Output : 1.5

Input :  a = 9.7,
b = 2.3
Output : 0.5
```

A simple solution is to do repeated subtraction.

We can use the inbuilt fmod function to find the modulus of two floating-point numbers.
