I have a some numbers, all of them ranging from 1-100. Is there a code to look at only the number in the one's place. like for the number 96; make it only look at the number six. like i want to make a variable equal to whatever number is in the one's place. if anyone knows how to do this it would be greatly appreciated.

If you use the mod (remainder) function you can do what you want.

Looks like a home work!
Here is a hint: Use Modulo Division
