Program to compute division upto n decimal places

  • Difficulty Level : Basic
  • Last Updated : 20 Apr, 2021
Geek Week

Given 3 numbers x, y and n compute the division (x/y) upto n decimal places.
Examples : 
 

Input  : x = 22, y = 7, n = 10
Output : 3.1428571428
Explanation :
Since n = 10, division (x / y) is taken till
10 decimal places.

Input  : x = 22, y = 7, n = 20
Output : 3.14285714285714285714

 

Approach : 
 

  1. Get the remainder and get it subtracted by the dividend, multiply it by ten and go to the next iteration.
  2. If we reach the complete result, we may not need to continue until the pre-defined number of iterations are reached.

    }
    if (n <= 0) {
        // Since n <= 0, don't compute after
        // the decimal
        cout << x / y << endl;
        return;

    // Handling negative numbers
