Advertisements


Description

The C library function div_t div(int numer, int denom) divides numer (numerator) by denom (denominator).

Declaration

Following is the declaration for div() function.

div_t div(int numer, int denom)

Parameters

  • numer -- This is the numerator.

  • denom -- This is the denominator.

Return Value

This function returns the value in a structure defined in <cstdlib>, which has two members. For div_t:int quot; int rem;

Example

The following example shows the usage of div() function.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

int main()
{
   div_t output;

   output = div(27, 4);
   printf("Quotient part of (27/ 4) = %d\n", output.quot);
   printf("Remainder part of (27/4) = %d\n", output.rem);

   output = div(27, 3);
   printf("Quotient part of (27/ 3) = %d\n", output.quot);
   printf("Remainder part of (27/3) = %d\n", output.rem);

   return(0);
}

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result:

Quotient part of (27/ 4) = 6
Remainder part of (27/4) = 3
Quotient part of (27/ 3) = 9
Remainder part of (27/3) = 0
