It would be nice to see the expression you're working on, but methinks you need to use "%" the modulus operator, it gives the remainder.

In this expression, a Blue Solid's rotation is the same as the Medium Red Solid's rotation (just by pickwhipping the Blue Solid's rotation to the Medium Red Solid's rotation.

thisComp.layer("Medium Red Solid 1").rotation

So "-3 x 0.0" on the Red gives "-3 x 0.0" on the Blue.

But if you add %360 to the expression you get what you are after:

thisComp.layer("Medium Red Solid 1").rotation%360

The 360 tells it what to divide by, and then gives the remainder.

So "-3 x 0.0" on the Red gives "0 x 0.0) on the Blue.
