In this article, we will understand how to compute the quotient and reminder in Kotlin. Quotient and Reminder is calculated using two simple formulae −

“Quotient = Dividend / Divisor”
“Remainder = Dividend % Divisor”


Below is a demonstration of the same

Suppose our input is −

Dividend value: 50
Divisor: 3


The desired output would be −

Quotient: 16
Remainder: 2


## Algorithm

• Step 1 − Start

• Step 2 − Declare four integers as myDividend , myDivisor, resultQuotient, resultRemainder

• Step 3 − Define the integers

• Step 4 − Use the formula to find the quotient and the reminder “Quotient = Dividend / Divisor” and “Remainder = Dividend % Divisor”

• Step 5 − Display the result

• Step 6 − Stop

## Example 1

In this example, we will calculate the Quotient and Remainder. First, set and initialize the values for Dividend and Divisor;

val myDividend = 50
val myDivisor = 3


Now, find the quotient and remainder using the above given formulae −

val resultQuotient = myDividend / myDivisor
val resultRemainder = myDividend % myDivisor


Let us see the example to compute the quotient and reminder in Kotlin −

fun main() {
val myDividend = 50
val myDivisor = 3

println("The Dividend value is defined as $myDividend and Divisor value is defined as$myDivisor ")

val resultQuotient = myDividend / myDivisor
val resultRemainder = myDividend % myDivisor

println("The quotient is $resultQuotient") println("The remainder is$resultRemainder")
}


## Output

The Dividend value is defined as 50 and Divisor value is defined as 3
The quotient is 16
The remainder is 2


## Example 2

In this example, we will compute Quotient and Remainder with a custom function −

fun main() {
val myDividend = 50
val myDivisor = 3
println("The Dividend value is defined as $myDividend and Divisor value is defined as$myDivisor ")
getValues(myDividend, myDivisor)
}

fun getValues(myDividend: Int, myDivisor: Int) {
val resultQuotient = myDividend / myDivisor
val resultRemainder = myDividend % myDivisor
println("The quotient is $resultQuotient") println("The remainder is$resultRemainder")
}


## Output

The Dividend value is defined as 50 and Divisor value is defined as 3
The quotient is 16
The remainder is 2


## Example 3

In this example, we will calculate the Quotient and Remainder of a negative number

fun main() {
val myDividend = -40
val myDivisor = 7

println("The Dividend value is defined as $myDividend and Divisor value is defined as$myDivisor ")

val resultQuotient = myDividend / myDivisor
val resultRemainder = myDividend % myDivisor

println("The quotient is $resultQuotient") println("The remainder is$resultRemainder")
}


## Output

The Dividend value is defined as -40 and Divisor value is defined as 7
The quotient is -5
The remainder is -5
