I have a small ISR with an if statement.  I have a 360 slot trigger wheel and what im trying to do is create an if statement that will only equate true on every 8th tooth.  The idea is to make it into a 45 tooth wheel, buy only executing on every 8th.  My problem is that I'm not sure how the statement should look.

something like this maybe..........
 
if(counter % 8)
{
do some stuff
}
