The MOD function in Excel allows you to perform a modulus operation, which returns the remainder of a division operation. This can be useful if you want to determine if a number is divisible by another number.

To use the MOD function, you will need to follow these steps:

- Select the cell where you want the result of the MOD function to appear.
- Type “=MOD(” (without the quotes) into the cell.
- Specify the number that you want to divide. This should be a number or a reference to a cell containing a number.
- Type a comma and then specify the number that you want to divide by. This should also be a number or a reference to a cell containing a number.
- Close the parenthesis by typing “)”.

For example, if you wanted to determine if the number 10 is divisible by the number 3, you could use the following formula: “=MOD(10, 3)”. This will return the remainder of the division operation, which is 1. If the number is divisible, the result will be 0.

You can also use the MOD function to perform modulus operations on larger numbers or ranges of numbers. For example, if you wanted to determine if the numbers in the range A1:A5 are divisible by the number 3, you could use the following formula: “=MOD(A1:A5, 3)”. This will return an array of values consisting of the remainders of the division operations for each number in the range A1:A5.

I hope this tutorial has been helpful in understanding how to use the MOD function in Excel.
