### Program in python to find quotient and remainder after division

Given below is a code snippet to write a python program to divide two numbers (by taking fixed values). And we will also find quotient as well.

``````# Owner : TutorialsInhand Author : Devjeet Roy

n1 = int(input("Enter first number: "))
n2 = int(input("Enter second number: "))

quotient = n1/n2
remainder = n1 % n2

print("The quotient is:",quotient);
print("The remainder is:",remainder);
``````

The output of the python program to divide two numbers is as follows:

``````PS C:\Users\DEVJEET\Desktop\tutorialsInHand> python code.py
Enter first number: 30
Enter second number: 5
The quotient is: 6.0
The remainder is: 0``````

1. To find the quotient we use the "/" operator in Python. But it returns the output in float datatype. So, to get the output as an integer, we should use "//" instead of "/" in Python.

2. To find the remainder we use the "%" operator in Python.

3. We can ignore storing value in the variable by directly performing mathemtical computations in the print() statement. Basic Python Programs
