# C Program To Divide Two Numbers

In this post, we will learn how to divide two numbers using C Programming language.

This program will take two numbers as input from the user and divide those two numbers using / operator. For example: If the user enters 42 and 7, then this program will return 6 which is the quotient.

So, without further ado, let’s begin this tutorial.

## C Program To Divide Two Numbers

```//C Program To Divide Two Numbers
#include<stdio.h>
int main(){
int num1, num2, quotient;

printf("Enter first number: ");
scanf("%d", &num1);
printf("Enter second number: ");
scanf("%d", &num2);

//Computing quotient
quotient = num1 / num2;
printf("Quotient: %d", quotient);
return 0;
}
```

Output

``````Enter first number: 456
Enter second number: 7
Quotient: 65``````

## How Does This Program Work ?

```int num1, num2, quotient;
```

In this program, we have declared some int data type variables which will store the input numbers and the quotient.

```  //Asking for input
printf("Enter first number: ");
scanf("%d", &num1);
printf("Enter second number: ");
scanf("%d", &num2);
```

Then, the user is asked to enter the value of two numbers.

```  //Computing quotient
quotient = num1 / num2;
```

After dividing the two numbers with the help of / operator, we get the quotient.Â

```printf("Quotient: %d", quotient);
```

Finally, the result is displayed to the screen using printf() function.

## Conclusion

I hope after going through this post, you understand how to divide two numbers using C Programming language.
