In Python, using the in-built **python divmod **function, you can find the remainder and the quotient of any two numbers given as the input.

**Example: **

The input x,y is taken from the user, and the output is derived using the divmod()

Input : x = 16, y = 8 Output :(2, 0) Input : x = 50, y = 5 Output :(10, 0) Input : x = 67 y = 5 Output :(13, 2)

**What is Divmod in Python?**

The divmod function in Python returns the quotient and remainder as output as a tuple.

**Syntax:**

The syntax of the **python divmod** function is as follows:

**divmod(a, b)**

**divmod() Parameters:**

The syntax takes two arguments a, b.

a- is a non-complex integer & the numerator. This argument is the dividend

b- is a non-complex integer & the denominator. This argument is the divisor.

**Return Value from divmod()**

When we pass a,b as the parameters, the **python divmod **function returns a / b and a % b as the output.

If a, b are integers, the return value would be:

(a / b, a % b)

OR

If a, b are float values, the return value would be:

(q, a % b), where q denotes the entire quotient.

**Example: How does the divmod() work in Python?**

# using the divmod() with integer values print('(6, 5) = ', divmod(6, 5)) print('(10, 5) = ', divmod(10, 5)) print('(17, 17) = ', divmod(11, 11)) print('(15, 13) = ', divmod(15, 13)) # using the divmod() with integer and float values print('(6.0, 5) = ', divmod((6.0, 5)) print('(3, 9.0) = ', divmod(3, 9.0)) print('(13.5, 6.2) = ', divmod(13.5, 6.2)) print('(1.6, 10.7) = ', divmod((1.6, 10.7)) Output: (6, 5) = (1, 1) (10, 5) = (2, 0) (17, 17) = (1, 0) (15, 13) = (1, 2) (6.0, 5) = (2.0, 2.0) (3, 9.0) = (0.0, 3.0) (13.5, 6.2) = (3.0, 0.0) (1.6, 10.7) = (5.0, 0.10000000000000009)

**Exceptions:**

Consider a,b as the input,

If a is zero, then the function will return 0,0 as the output.

If b is zero, then the function will return Zero Division Error as the output.

**What is the Quotient in Python?**

When two numbers divide with each other, the result is known as the quotient.

**For example:**

Input: y = 10 z = 7 Output: Quotient: 1 Remainder 3 Input y = 88 z = 5 Output: Quotient: 17 Remainder 3

We can divide two numbers using the ‘//’ operator one can derive the quotient. The remainder is calculated using the ‘%’ operator in Python.

**For example:**

**Method 1:**

**Source Code:**

def find(n, m): # for quotient q = n//m print("Quotient: ", q) # for remainder r = n%m print("Remainder", r) # Driver Code find(10, 3) find(99, 5) Output: Quotient: 3 Remainder 1 Quotient: 19 Remainder 4

**Method 2: **Using the Divmod() method

**Source Code:**

q, r = divmod(10, 3) print("Quotient: ", q) print("Remainder: ", r) q, r = divmod(99, 5) print("Quotient: ", q) print("Remainder: ", r) q, r = divmod(99, 5) print("Quotient: ", q) print("Remainder: ", r) Output: Quotient: 3 Remainder 1 Quotient: 19 Remainder 4 Quotient: 19 Remainder 4

**What is Modulus in Python?**

The modulus operator (%) is used to find the remainder after the division of 2 numbers.

Syntax:

x % y

Here, x is divided by y. The remainder is found using the modulus operator. The operands of this expression can either be integers or float values.

**Source code to find the remainder using the mod operator**

a = 13 b = 5 # the remainder is stored in c c = a % b print(a, "mod", b, "=", c, sep = " ") # inputs d = 15.0 e = 7.0 f = d % e print(d, "mod", e, "=", f, sep = " ") Output: 13 mod 5 = 3 15.0 mod 7.0 = 1.0

We can also use the **python divmod**() to find both the quotient and the remainder of the integers.

**How do you get a Dividend in Python?**

The dividend is the number you divide into equal parts. The dividend and the divisor are used to calculate the quotient and the remainders. The dividend can be taken as input from the user.
