C Program to Compute Quotient and Remainder
  • Last Updated : 24 Oct, 2018

Given two numbers A and B. The task is to write a program to find the quotient and remainder of these two numbers when A is divided by B.

quotient_remainder

Examples:

Input: A = 2, B = 6
Output: Quotient = 0, Remainder = 2

Input: A = 17, B = 5
Output: Quotient = 3, Remainder = 2

In the below program, to find the quotient and remainder of the two numbers, the user is first asked to enter two numbers. The inputs are scanned using the scanf() function and stored in the variables A and B. Then, the variables A and B are divided using the arithmetic operator / to get the quotient as result stored in the variable quotient; and using the arithmetic operator % to get the remainder as result stored in the variable remainder.

Below is the programs to find the quotient and remainder of two numbers:

C




// C program to find quotient
// and remainder of two numbers
  
#include <stdio.h>
  
int main()
{
    int A, B, quotient = 0, remainder = 0;
  
    // Ask user to enter the two numbers
    printf("Enter two numbers A and B : \n");
  
    // Read two numbers from the user || A = 17, B = 5
    scanf("%d%d", &A, &B);
  
    // Calclulate the quotient of A and B using '/' operator
    quotient = A / B;
  
    // Calclulate the remainder of A and B using '%' operator
    remainder = A % B;
  
    // Print the result
    printf("Quotient when A/B is: %d\n", quotient);
    printf("Remainder when A/B is: %d", remainder);
  
    return 0;
}

Java




// java program to find quotient
// and remainder of two numbers
  
  
import java.io.*;
import java.util.Scanner;
  
class GFG {
   
  
    public static void main (String[] args) {
         Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
    int A = input.nextInt();
    int B= input.nextInt();
    int 
    quotient = 0, remainder = 0;
  
    // Ask user to enter the two numbers
    System.out.println("Enter two numbers A and B : "+" "+ A+" "+ B);
  
    // Read two numbers from the user || A = 17, B = 5
      
  
  
    // Calclulate the quotient of A and B using '/' operator
    quotient = A / B;
  
    // Calclulate the remainder of A and B using '%' operator
    remainder = A % B;
  
    // Print the result
    System.out.println("Quotient when A/B is: "+ quotient);
    System.out.println("Remainder when A/B is: "+ remainder);
    }
}

Python3




# Python3 program to find quotient 
# and remainder of two numbers
  
if __name__=='__main__':
      
    quotient = 0
    remainder = 0
  
  
#Read two numbers from the user || A = 17, B = 5
    A, B = [int(x) for x in input().split()]
  
#Calclulate the quotient of A and B using '/' operator
    quotient = int(A / B)
  
#Calclulate the remainder of A and B using '%' operator
    remainder = A % B
  
#Print the result
    print("Quotient when A/B is:", quotient)
    print("Remainder when A/B is:", remainder)

Output:
Enter two numbers A and B : 17 5
Quotient when A/B is: 3
Remainder when A/B is: 2
