C++ <cstdlib> - div_t structure type

The C++ <cstdlib> div_t is a structure to represent both the quotient and the remainder of the division of the integral numerator by integral denominator. This is the type returned by div() function.

In the <cstdlib> header file, it is defined as follows:

struct div_t { int quot; int rem; };


struct div_t { int rem; int quot; };


The example below shows the usage of <cstdlib> div_t type.

#include <iostream>
#include <cstdlib>
using namespace std;
int main (){
  div_t result = div(50, 17);

  cout<<"div(50, 17) gives quotient = "<<
      result.quot<<" and remainder = "<< 
  return 0;

The output of the above code will be:

div(50, 17) gives quotient = 2 and remainder = 16
