C++ Program to find remainder without using the modulus operator


In this program, You will learn how to find the remainder without using the modulus operator in C++.


0 = 10 % 5

5 = 5 % 10

Example: How to find the remainder without using the modulus operator in C++

#include<iostream>
using namespace std;

int main() {
    int a, b;
    cout << "Enter first number:";
    cin >> a;
    cout << "Enter second number:";
    cin>>b;

    while (a >= b) {
        a = a - b;
    }
    cout << "Remainder is:" << a;

    return 0;
}

Output:

Enter first number:12
Enter second number:5
Remainder is:2
