Modular arithmetic is a system of arithmetic for integers where numbers "wrap around" when reaching a certain value. It was developed by Carl Friedrich Gauss in 1801 and is commonly used in 12-hour clocks, where the day is divided into two 12-hour periods. Addition is done modulo 12, so 15:00 on a 24-hour clock is displayed as 3:00 on a 12-hour clock.
