# Program to compute division upto n decimal places

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
```

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

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.
