# bits.Div() function in Golang with Examples

Go language provides inbuilt support for bits to implement bit counting and manipulation functions for the predeclared unsigned integer types with the help of bits package. This package provides Div() function which is used to find the quotient and remainder of (a, b) divided by c, i.e., q = (a, b)/c, r = (a, b)%c with the dividend bits’ upper half in parameter a and the lower half in parameter b. This function panics if c == 0 (division by zero) or c <= a (quotient overflow). To access Div() function you need to add a math/bits package in your program with the help of the import keyword.

Syntax:

`func Div(a, b, c uint) (q, r uint)`

Parameters: This function takes three parameters of uint type, i.e., a, b, and c.

Return Value: This function return two values of uint type, i.e., q and r. Here q is known as quotient and r is known as the remainder.

Example 1 :

 `// Golang program to illustrate bits.Div() Function ` `package main ` ` `  `import ( ` `    ``"fmt"` `    ``"math/bits"` `) ` ` `  `// Main function ` `func main() { ` ` `  `    ``// Finding quotient and remainder ` `    ``// Using Div() function ` `    ``q, r := bits.Div(1, 12, 2) ` `    ``fmt.Println(``"Quotient:"``, q) ` `    ``fmt.Println(``"Remainder:"``, r) ` ` `  `} `

Output:

```Quotient: 9223372036854775814
Remainder: 0
```

Example 2:

 `// Golang program to illustrate bits.Div() Function ` ` `  `package main ` ` `  `import ( ` `    ``"fmt"` `    ``"math/bits"` `) ` ` `  `// Main function ` `func main() { ` ` `  `    ``// Finding quotient and remainder ` `    ``// Using Div() function ` `    ``var a, b, c uint = 1, 13, 3 ` `    ``q, r := bits.Div(a, b, c) ` `    ``fmt.Println(``"Number 1:"``, a) ` `    ``fmt.Println(``"Number 2:"``, b) ` `    ``fmt.Println(``"Number 3:"``, c) ` `    ``fmt.Println(``"Quotient:"``, q) ` `    ``fmt.Println(``"Remainder:"``, r) ` ` `  `} `

Output:

```Number 1: 1
Number 2: 13
Number 3: 3
Quotient: 6148914691236517209
Remainder: 2
```
