Python divmod() function

divmod() function is a library function, it is used to get the quotient and remainder of given values (dividend and divisor), it accepts two arguments 1) dividend and 2) divisor and returns a tuple that contains quotient and remainder.

Syntax:

    divmod(dividend, divisor)

Parameter(s):

  • dividend – a number to be divided.
  • divisor – a number to be divided with.

Return value: tuple – it returns a tuple containing quotient and remainder.

Example:

    Input:
    a = 10  #dividend
    b = 3   #divisor

    # finding quotient and remainder
    result = divmod(a,b)
    print("result = ", result)
    
    Output:
    result =  (3, 1)

Python code to find quotient and remainder of two numbers

# python code to demonstrate example of 
# divmod() number

a = 10  #dividend
b = 3   #divisor

print("return type of divmod() function: ", type(divmod(a,b)))

# finding quotient and remainder
result = divmod(a,b)
print("result = ", result)

# float values
a = 10.23  #dividend
b = 3.12   #divisor

# finding quotient and remainder
result = divmod(a,b)
print("result = ", result)

Output

return type of divmod() function:  <class 'tuple'>
result =  (3, 1)
result =  (3.0, 0.8700000000000001)
