Sample Solution:

Java Code:

`````` import java.util.Scanner;

public class Solution {
// Method to perform division using subtraction
public static float divide_using_subtraction(int dividend, int divider) {
if (divider == 0) {
return 0; // If the divider is zero, return 0 (division by zero error)
}

float result = 0; // Initialize the result variable to store the quotient

// Perform division using subtraction
while (dividend > divider) {
dividend -= divider; // Subtract the divider from the dividend
result++; // Increment the result (quotient)
}

float decimalPart = (float) dividend / (float) divider; // Calculate the decimal part of the quotient
result += decimalPart; // Add the decimal part to the result
return result; // Return the final result (quotient)
}

public static void main(String[] args) {
Scanner in = new Scanner(System.in); // Create Scanner object to take user input
System.out.print("Input the dividend: "); // Prompt user to input the dividend
int dividend = in.nextInt(); // Read input dividend

System.out.print("Input the divider: "); // Prompt user to input the divider
int divider = in.nextInt(); // Read input divider

System.out.println("\nResult: " + divide_using_subtraction(dividend, divider)); // Display the result of division
}
}
```
```

Sample Output:

```Input the dividend:  625
Input the divider:  25

Result: 25.0
```
