irem

integer remainder

iquo

integer quotient

 Calling Sequence irem(m, n)  irem(m, n, 'q') iquo(m, n)  iquo(m, n, 'r')

Parameters

 m, n - any expressions q, r - names

Description

 • If  m and n are both integers the function irem computes the integer remainder of m divided by n. If the third argument is present it will be assigned the quotient. Likewise, iquo computes the integer quotient of m divided by n and if the third argument is present assigns it the remainder.
 • Specifically, if m and n are integers then irem returns r such that $m=nq+r,\left|r\right|<\left|n\right|$ and $0\le mr$.
 • If either of m or n is symbolic, then irem remains unevaluated.

Thread Safety

 • The irem and iquo commands are thread-safe as of Maple 15.
 • For more information on thread safety, see index/threadsafe.

Examples

 > $\mathrm{irem}\left(23,4,'q'\right)$
 ${3}$ (1)
 > $q$
 ${5}$ (2)
 > $\mathrm{iquo}\left(23,4,'r'\right)$
 ${5}$ (3)
 > $r$
 ${3}$ (4)
 > $\mathrm{irem}\left(-23,4\right)$
 ${-3}$ (5)
 > $\mathrm{iquo}\left(-23,4\right)$
 ${-5}$ (6)
 > $\mathrm{irem}\left(23,-4\right)$
 ${3}$ (7)
 > $\mathrm{iquo}\left(23,-4\right)$
 ${-5}$ (8)
 > $\mathrm{irem}\left(-23,-4\right)$
 ${-3}$ (9)
 > $\mathrm{iquo}\left(-23,-4\right)$
 ${5}$ (10)

Use the rem and quo commands for symbolic m or n.

 > $\mathrm{irem}\left(x,3\right)$
 ${\mathrm{irem}}{}\left({x}{,}{3}\right)$ (11)
 > $\mathrm{rem}\left(x,3,x,'q'\right)$
 ${0}$ (12)
 > $q$
 $\frac{{x}}{{3}}$ (13)

Use the frem command for floating-point m or n.

 > $\mathrm{irem}\left(5,2.3\right)$
 > $\mathrm{frem}\left(5,2.3\right)$
 ${0.4}$ (14)
