Returns the quotient and remainder of the division of two numbers.

Syntax

divmod(x, y)

The divmod() method takes two arguments and returns a tuple, with the result of the division and the remainder.

Note: The method only accepts non-complex values and the quotient returned will always be a whole number (the quotient returned is the result of a floor-division).

Example

In the code below divmod() is implemented with two positive integers:

result = divmod(10, 3)
print(result)

The code above results in the following output:

(3, 1)

In this example, 10 divided by 3 yields 3, and the remainder is 1.
