I'm reading a Python book right now (Learning Python, a great book!), and there
are few terms that come are brought up a few times but without any explanation.

So what are:
- "remainders" (in the context of remainders-of-division modulus for numbers)
- "modulus" (in the same context; I have also seen it in different context, like
3D graphics programs to perform certain types of calculations).
