### MOD

MOD(a,b) returns the remainder when a is divied by b

If you use MOD(a, 2) you get 0 for even numbers and 1 for odd numbers.

If you use MOD(a, 10) you get the last digit of the number a.

MOD(27,2) -> 1 MOD(27,10) -> 7

With a `GROUP BY region`

statement each region shows up just once. The SUM column gives the total for each region.

SELECT yr%10, yr, city FROM games

SELECT MOD(yr,10), yr, city FROM games
