# Java Exercises: Divide the two specified integers using subtraction operator

## Java Basic: Exercise-164 with Solution

Write a Java program to divide the two given integers using subtraction operator.

Pictorial Presentation: 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;
result++;
}
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
```
