Java Basic Exercises: Divide the two specified integers using subtraction operator.

Sample Solution:

Java Code:

import java.util.Scanner;
public class Solution {	
	public static float divide_using_subtraction(int dividend, int divider) {
	if (divider == 0) {
       return 0;
    float result = 0;
    while (dividend > divider) {
      dividend -= divider;
    float decimalPart = (float) dividend / (float) divider;
    result += decimalPart;
    return result;
    public static void main(String[] args) {
 Scanner in = new Scanner(System.in);
        System.out.print("Input the dividend: ");
        int dividend = in.nextInt();
		System.out.print("Input the divider: ");
        int divider = in.nextInt();
		System.out.println("\nResult: " + divide_using_subtraction(dividend,divider));		

Sample Output:

Input the dividend:  625
Input the divider:  25

Result: 25.0
