We can use Python's divmod(~) built-in function to get the both the quotient and remainder. Alternatively, if we only want the quotient we can use // and if we only want the remainder we can use %.

Examples

Both quotient and remainder

To get the quotient and remainder as a tuple:

divmod(11, 3)
(3, 2)

We can use unpacking to store the quotient and remainder to separate variables:

quot, rem = divmod(11, 3)
print("Quotient: ", quot)
print("Remainder: ", rem)
Quotient: 3
Remainder: 2

Only quotient

To get only the quotient we can use the // operator:

print(11 // 3)
3

Only remainder

To get only the remainder we can use the % operator:

print(11 % 3)
2
