Python divmod()

In this post, we will see about Python divmod function.
divmod(a, b) returns pair of numbers consisting of their quotient and remainder when using integer division.


Syntax


Return

It returns

  • In case of integer arguements, it returns (a // b, a % b)
  • In case of float arguements, it returns (q, a % b), where q is usually math.floor(a / b)

Example

Let’s understand with help of simple example:

divmod in case of int

a=10 b=3 x,y=divmod(a,b) print("Quotient for 10/3: ",x) print("Remainder for 10%3 :",y)

Output:

Quotient for 10/3: 3
Remainder 10%3 : 1

divmod in case of flaot

You need to implement __index__() method which returns an int in case of user defined class.We are simply returning 9 from below __index__() and when you call bin(country), it internally executes __index__() of country class only.

a=13.4 b=3.2 x,y=divmod(a,b) print("Quotient for 13.4/3.2: ",x) print("Remainder for 13.4%3.2 :",y)

Output:

Quotient for 13.4/3.2: 4.0
Remainder for 13.4%3.2 : 0.5999999999999996

That’s all about Python divmod function.
