fractional remainder

Howdy folks,

Question: I am a new Octave user and cannot figure out how to grab the remainder of a fraction. For example, if I take 3/4 = 0.75, I just want to grab the 75.

Reason: I would like to check if the remainder is zero in order to determine if a number is odd or even. Any even number divided by 2 will have a remainder of 0, odd numbers will not. I am using this for loop control.

Problem: In Octave,  rem(3,4) gives 3. Obviously I do not understand this function. Can you please suggest the appropriate function to use.
