Write a Program to find quotient and remainder of two numbers

By | October 3, 2021

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

#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

#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.
