    In this programming tutorial, we will write a program to find the quotient and remainder of two numbers. When we divide two numbers the result we get is the quotient, it is the number of times a division is divided completely. A remainder is a value that is left after division when the divisor could not divide the dividend completely.

    Algorithm

    1. To find the quotient in programming languages we use / operator
    2. And to find remainder we use % (modulo) operator.

    C Program to find quotient and remainder of two numbers

    #include <stido.h>
    int main() 
    {
        int dividend, divisor, quotient, remainder;
        
        //ask user to enter dividend and divisor
    	printf("Enter dividend and divisor (eg 20 5): ");
        scanf("%d %d", &dividend, &divisor);
        
    	quotient = dividend/divisor;
    	remainder = dividend%divisor;
    	
    	printf("The quotient is: %d \n", quotient);
    	printf("The remainder is: %d", remainder);
        return 0;
    }

    Output

    Enter dividend and divisor (eg 20 5): 50 4
    The quotient is: 12
    The remainder is: 2

    C++ Program to find quotient and remainder of two numbers

    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    
    int main() 
    {
      	int dividend, divisor, quotient, remainder;
        
        //ask user to enter dividend and divisor
    	cout<<"Enter dividend and divisor (eg 20 5): "; cin>>dividend>> divisor;
        
    	quotient = dividend/divisor;
    	remainder = dividend%divisor;
    	
    	cout<<"The quotient is: "<< quotient<<endl;
    	cout<<"The remainder is: "<< remainder;
        return 0;
    }

    Output

    Enter dividend and divisor (eg 20 5): 60 30
    The quotient is: 2
    The remainder is: 0

    Python Program to find quotient and remainder of two numbers

    dividend, divisor = map(int, input("Enter dividend and divisor (eg 20 5): ").split())
    
    quotient = dividend//divisor
    remainder = dividend%divisor
    
    print("The Quotient is: ", quotient)
    print("The remainder is: ", remainder)

    Output

    Enter dividend and divisor (eg 20 5): 50 6
    The Quotient is: 8
    The remainder is: 2

    Conclusion

    In this programming tutorial, we learned how to find the quotient and remainder of two numbers in C, C++, and Python. To find the quotient of two numbers we simply divide them and to find the reminder we have a modulo operator in every programming language .
