# C program to find remainder of two numbers without using modulus (%) operator

In this C program, we will learn how can we find the remainder of two integer numbers without using modulus (%) operator?
Submitted by IncludeHelp, on April 26, 2018

Given two integer numbers and we have to find the remainder without using modulus operator (%) in C.

Here, we will read two integers numbers and find their remainder. To get the remainder we will not use the modulus (%) operator.

### Formulas to get the remainder,

1) Using modulus (%) operator

```    rem = a%b;
```

2) Without using modulus (%) operator

```    rem = a-(a/b)*b;
```

Here, a and b are the input numbers.

## C program to find the remainder of two numbers without using modulus (%) operator

```/*
* Program to get remainder without using % operator.
*/

#include <stdio.h>
int main()
{
int a,b,rem;
printf("Enter first number :");
scanf("%d",&a);
printf("Enter second number :");
scanf("%d",&b);

rem=a-(a/b)*b;

printf("Remainder is = %d\n",rem);
return 0;
}
```

Output

```    Enter first number :16
Enter second number :7
Remainder is = 2
```
