# Java division operator – Java Program on Division Operator

Java division operator: In the previous article, we have discussed about Java Program on Multiplication Operator

In this article we will see the use of division operator in Java.

## Java Program on Division Operator

Division operator is a binary operator and it is used to divide two numbers. Division operator is represented by the / symbol. After division it returns the quotient value.

Syntax: operand / operand

Example:

Let’s understand it more clearly.

Suppose we have 2 variables a and b.

a=20

b=5

Then we can use division operator like this.

result = a / b;  // here 2 variable operands are divided.

result = 20/5=4

(or)

result = 15 / b; // here one constant operand i.e. 15 and variable operand i.e. ‘b‘ divided.

result= 15/5=3

Program:

import java.io.*;

class Main
{
public static void main(String[] args)
{
//Declaring variables
int number1 = 39;
int number2 = 2;
//dividing two numbers by using division operator
int result = number1/number2;

//print results
System.out.println("By performing division operation: " + result);
}
}
Output:

By performing division operation: 19
