# Python Program to Divide Two Integers

## Getting Started

The task is to divide two integers in python. For example,

If a = 20 and b = 4, then output is 20 / 4 = 5

We can do so in multiple ways –

## Simple Approach

Using division operator (i.e. / operator) in python, we can divide two numbers as shown below –

```
b1 = 8
b2 = 4

result = b1 / b2  # Divide using / operator
print("Result:", result)
```

Output:

```
Result: 2.0
```

## Using User Input

• Take input from user using input() method.
• Then, convert them to integer using int() method.
• After that, use / operator to divide those integers.
```
b1 = int(input("Enter an integer"))
b2 = int(input("Enter another integer"))

result = b1 / b2
print("{0} / {1} is {2}" .format(b1, b2, result))
```

Output:

```
Enter an integer
20
Enter another integer
4
20 / 4 is 5.0
```

## Using User Input (Command Line Arguments)

Command line arguments can be taken using sys.argv present in sys module in python.
After that, convert those value into integer using int() method.

• #### Method 1

```
import sys
b1, b2 = sys.argv[1:3]
print("Result:", int(b1) / int(b2))
```

Output:

```
Result: 8.125
```

Run above code with command line arguments as 65 and 8.

• #### Method 2

```
import sys
b1, b2 = sys.argv[1:]
print("Result:", int(b1) / int(b2))
```

Output:

```
Result: 8.125
```

Run above code with command line arguments as 65 and 8.

## Using Lambda

We can wrap logic to divide two integers in python inside lambda function as shown below –

```
if __name__ == "__main__" :
b1 = 768
b2 = 24

# Divide two integers
divide_twoInt = lambda b1, b2 : b1 / b2
print("Result:", divide_twoInt(b1, b2))
```

Output:

```
Result: 32.0
```

## Using Function

If we want to write a function in python that returns division of two integers, we can do so as shown below –

```
def divideIntegers(b1, b2):
return b1 / b2

print("Result:", divideIntegers(105, 8))
```

Output:

```
Result: 13.125
```

That’s how we can write python program to divide two integers with examples.
