C++ Program to Find Quotient and Remainder

In this example, you will learn to find the quotient and remainder of a given dividend and divisor.

In this program, the user is asked to enter two integers (divisor and dividend) and the quotient and the remainder of their division is computed.

To compute quotient and remainder, both divisor and dividend should be integers.

Example: Compute quotient and remainder

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
    int divisor, dividend, quotient, remainder;

    cout << "Enter dividend: ";
    cin >> dividend;

    cout << "Enter divisor: ";
    cin >> divisor;

    quotient = dividend / divisor;
    remainder = dividend % divisor;

    cout << "Quotient = " << quotient << endl;
    cout << "Remainder = " << remainder;

    return 0;


Enter dividend: 13
Enter divisor: 4
Quotient = 3
Remainder = 1

The division operator / computes the quotient (either between float or integer variables).

The modulus operator % computes the remainder when one integer is divided by another (modulus operator cannot be used for floating-type variables).
