Java Program to Compute Quotient and Remainder

# Java Program to Compute Quotient and Remainder

## Example: Compute Quotient and Remainder

``````public class QuotientRemainder {

public static void main(String[] args) {

int dividend = 25, divisor = 4;

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

System.out.println("Quotient = " + quotient);
System.out.println("Remainder = " + remainder);
}
}``````

When you run the program, the output will be:

```Quotient = 6
Remainder = 1```

In the above program, two numbers `25` (dividend) and `4` (divisor) are stored in two variables dividend and divisor respectively.

Now, to find the quotient we divide dividend by divisor using `/` operator. Since, both dividend and divisor are integers, the result will also be computed as an integer.

So, mathematically `25/4` results `6.25`, but since both operands are `int`, quotient variable only stores `6` (integer part).

Likewise, to find the remainder we use the `%` operator. So, the remainder of `25/4`, i.e. `1` is stored in an integer variable remainder.

Finally, quotient and remainder are printed on the screen using `println()` function.
