Kotlin Program to Compute Quotient and Remainder

Kotlin Program to Compute Quotient and Remainder

In this program, you'll learn to compute quotient and remainder from the given dividend and divisor in Kotlin.

Example: Compute Quotient and Remainder

fun main(args: Array<String>) {

    val dividend = 25
    val divisor = 4

    val quotient = dividend / divisor
    val remainder = dividend % divisor

    println("Quotient = $quotient")
    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. Unlike Java, these are automatically assigned Int type in Kotlin.

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

So, mathematically even if 25/4 results 6.25, 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 Int variable remainder.

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