In Python, you can use “\” to calculate the quotient of an integer and “%” to calculate the remainder (remainder, mod).

q = 10 // 3 mod = 10 % 3 print(q, mod) # 3 1

The built-in function divmod() is useful when you want both the quotient and remainder of an integer.

The following tuples are returned by divmod(a, b).`(a // b, a % b)`

Each can be unpacked and acquired.

q, mod = divmod(10, 3) print(q, mod) # 3 1

Of course, you can also pick it up directly at the tuple.

answer = divmod(10, 3) print(answer) print(answer[0], answer[1]) # (3, 1) # 3 1
