C Program to Compute Quotient and Remainder

In this example, you will learn to find the quotient and remainder when an integer is divided by another integer.

To understand this example, you should have the knowledge of the following C programming topics:

Program to Compute Quotient and Remainder

#include <stdio.h>
int main() {
    int dividend, divisor, quotient, remainder;
    printf("Enter dividend: ");
    scanf("%d", &dividend);
    printf("Enter divisor: ");
    scanf("%d", &divisor);

    // Computes quotient
    quotient = dividend / divisor;

    // Computes remainder
    remainder = dividend % divisor;

    printf("Quotient = %d\n", quotient);
    printf("Remainder = %d", remainder);
    return 0;
}

Output

Enter dividend: 25
Enter divisor: 4
Quotient = 6
Remainder = 1 

In this program, the user is asked to enter two integers (dividend and divisor). They are stored in variables dividend and divisor respectively.

printf("Enter dividend: ");
scanf("%d", &dividend);
printf("Enter divisor: ");
scanf("%d", &divisor);

Then the quotient is evaluated using / (the division operator), and stored in quotient.

quotient = dividend / divisor;

Similarly, the remainder is evaluated using % (the modulo operator) and stored in remainder.

remainder = dividend % divisor;

Finally, the quotient and remainder are displayed using printf().

printf("Quotient = %d\n", quotient);
printf("Remainder = %d", remainder);
