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
