**Quotients and Remainders**

Quotient of division

The quotient of *a* divided by *b* is obtained by INT(*a* / *b*).

INT(*x*) stands for the largest integer not greater than *x*.

If *x* is a positive number, INT(*x*) coincides with the truncated number.

**Remainder of division**

The remainder of *a* divided by a positive number *b* is obtained by *a*-*b**INT(*a* / *b*) or MOD(*a*,*b*).

[Note]

The remainder for real numbers

For a real number *a* and a positive real number *b*, there exists a unique integer *q* and a real number *r* such that 0≤*r*<*b*.

On this case, *q* is called the quotient, and *r* the remainder.

Example. A program which finds a number of bottles and the volume of the rest when *x* litre of liquid is divided into the bottles of capacity 1.8 litre.

10 INPUT x
20 PRINT INT(x/1.8),MOD(x,1.8)
30 END
