% modular Problem. Can someone help?

% modular Problem. Can someone help?

I am having so trouble with % modular in one of my excercise. The problem starts with a wholesale company who will only ship case of 12 items, or master case of 144 items. That means if someone ordered one item, he will get one case of 12.
1. Number of items order 200
2. Case Size 12
4. Master Case Size 144
5. Cost per case 1.5

1. Number of items order 200
2. Case size 12
3. Master case size 144
4. Cost per items $ 1.5
5. Number of case shipped 5
6. Number of master case 1
7. Number of items shipped 204
8. Total cost of shippment 306.00

Here are some of my problem:#include <iostream.h>

int main()

int Case, Mcase, num1, num2, items, total;
Case = 12;
Mcase = 12;

num1 = items%Case;
num2 = items%Mcase;

if (num1 > 1)
num1 = +1;
else num1 = 0;

cout << " Enter number of items you want to order: " <<endl;
cin >> items;

Case = (items/Case) + num1 ;
cout << "number of case ordered " <<Case <<endl;
Mcase = (items/Mcase) + num2;
cout << "number of master case ordered " <<Mcase <<endl;


RE: % modular Problem. Can someone help?

the mod will only return the remained. If you want to calculate thwe whole and the remaineder you need to do this

quotient = num / input
remainder = num % input
