    In math, MOD = Modulus. In other words, it's "Absolute Value". On Openstudy MOD is generally referred to Moderators. Which one are u referring to?

    there is also a 'modular arithmetic' http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modular_arithmetic and the modulo operation (which is about finding remainders basically) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modulo_operation

    the problem was something like 17mod5+16mod10 or something like that

    17mod5=2 because 17/5 has a remainder of 2 16mod10=6 because 16/10 has a remainder of 6 so 17mod5+16mod10=8
