# 8085 program to divide two 16 bit numbers

• Last Updated : 26 Jul, 2021

Problem – Write an assembly language program in 8085 microprocessor to divide two 16 bit numbers.

Assumption –

• Starting address of program: 2000

• Input memory location: 2050, 2051, 2052, 2053

• Output memory location: 2054, 2055, 2056, 2057.

Example –

```INPUT:
(2050H) = 04H
(2051H) = 00H
(2052H) = 02H
(2053H) = 00H
OUTPUT:
(2054H) = 02H
(2055H) = 00H
(2056H) = FEH
(2057H) = FFH ```

RESULT:
Hence we have divided two 16 bit numbers.

Algorithm –

1. Initialise register BC as 0000H for Quotient.

2. Load the divisor in HL pair and save it in DE register pair.

3. Load the dividend in HL pair.

4. Subtract the content of accumulator with E register.

5. Move the content A to C and H to A.

6. Subtract with borrow the content of A with D.

7. Move the value of accumulator to H.

8. If CY=1, goto step 10, otherwise next step.

10. ADD both contents of DE and HL.

11. Store the remainder in memory.

12. Move the content of C to L & B to H.

13. Store the quotient in memory.

Program –

Explanation –

1. LXI B, 0000H: initialise BC register as 0000H.

3. XCHG: exchange the content of HL pair with DE pair register.

5. MOV A, L: move the content of register L into register A.

6. SUB E: subtract the contents of register E with contents of accumulator.

7. MOV L, A: move the content of register A into register L.

8. MOV A, H: move the content of register H into register A.

9. SBB D: subtract the contents of register D with contents of accumulator with carry.

10. MOV H, A: move the content of register A into register H.

12. INX B: increment BC register by one.

15. SHLD 2056: stores the content of HL pair into memory address 2056 and 2057.

16. MOV L, C: move the content of register C into register L.

17. MOV H, B: move the content of register B into register H.

18. SHLD 2054: stores the content of HL pair into memory address 2054 and 2055.

19. HLT: terminates the execution of program.
