Is they a way to / a number into two differnt variables with the quoteint in one and the reminder in the other? eg.
10 / 4 = 2.5

y = 5
Thanks much for any help.

The "/" operator will give you the quotient; the "%" operator will give you the remainder (not a fraction, but the actual remainder.) SO you can do this with two operations.
