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 **

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

**C Program**

#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", ÷nd, &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**

#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**

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.
