## What is mod in Stata?

In other words, it is the remainder on dividing x by y. It is obvious that 0.3 is a multiple of 0.1 and that the result should be 0, but given . display mod(0.3,0.1) Stata shows 0.1.

**What is the mod of a function?**

FAQs on Modulus Function The modulus function, which is also called the absolute value of a function gives the magnitude or absolute value of a number irrespective of the number being positive or negative. Modulus function is denoted as y = |x| or f(x) = |x|, where f: R → R and x ∈ R.

### How do you write a MOD function?

b = mod( a , m ) returns the remainder after division of a by m , where a is the dividend and m is the divisor. This function is often called the modulo operation, which can be expressed as b = a – m. *floor(a./m) . The mod function follows the convention that mod(a,0) returns a .

**Can you write functions in Stata?**

Official Stata has no functions for these calculations, although user-defined functions may be found. They may, however, be performed easily using egen functions.

## What is mod XY?

mod(X;Y) Returns the modulo of two given values.

**What does MOD X Y mean?**

The number X (mod Y) is the remainder when X is divided by Y.

### How do you find a mod?

Modulus on a Standard Calculator

- Divide a by n.
- Subtract the whole part of the resulting quantity.
- Multiply by n to obtain the modulus.

**What does mod mean in code?**

In computing, the modulo (sometimes called modulus, or mod) operation finds the remainder of division of one number by another. Given two positive numbers, a (the dividend) and n (the divisor), a modulo n (abbreviated as a mod n) is the remainder of the Euclidean division of a by n.

## How can I use mod in C?

The modulo operator in C will give the remainder that is left over when one number is divided by another. For example, 23 % 4 will result in 3 since 23 is not evenly divisible by 4, and a remainder of 3 is left over.

**What programming language does Stata use?**

The software was originally intended to compete with statistical programs for personal computers such as SYSTAT and MicroTSP. Stata was written, then as now, in the C programming language, initially for PCs running the DOS operating system.
