Hi, I need to check whether two numbers are divisible or not. But how can I do that in Matlab? e.g. Matlab gives 1.5 for 3/2 but I need to get 3/2 = 0 and 4/2 =2.

~mod(a,b)

is fine

**mod** and **rem** are the same when a and b have the same sign

However, I used rem(a,b) format after checking the help files and it worked. Anyway thank you very much.
