# Find modular node in a linked list

• Difficulty Level : Easy
• Last Updated : 22 Jun, 2022

Given a singly linked list and a number k, find the last node whose n%k == 0, where n is the number of nodes in the list.
Examples:

```Input : list = 1->2->3->4->5->6->7
k = 3
Output : 6

Input : list = 3->7->1->9->8
k = 2
Output : 9```

1. Take a pointer modularNode and initialize it with NULL. Traverse the linked list.
2. For every i%k=0, update modularNode.
