Advertisements


Description

The java.math.BigInteger.divideAndRemainder(BigInteger val) returns an array of two BigIntegers containing (this / val) followed by (this % val).

Declaration

Following is the declaration for java.math.BigInteger.divideAndRemainder() method.

public BigInteger[] divideAndRemainder(BigInteger val)

Parameters

val − Value by which this BigInteger is to be divided, and the remainder computed.

Return Value

This method returns an array of two BigIntegers: the quotient (this / val) is the initial element, and the remainder (this % val) is the final element.

Exception

ArithmeticException − If val is zero.

Example

The following example shows the usage of math.BigInteger.divideAndRemainder() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.math.*;

public class BigIntegerDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

      // create 2 BigInteger objects
      BigInteger bi1, bi2;

      bi1 = new BigInteger("-100");
      bi2 = new BigInteger("3");

      // BigInteger array bi stores result of bi1/bi2
      BigInteger bi[] = bi1.divideAndRemainder(bi2);

      // print quotient and remainder
      System.out.println("Division result");
      System.out.println("Quotient is " + bi[0] );
      System.out.println("Remainder is " + bi[1] );
   }
}

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

Division result
Quotient is -33
Remainder is -1
