In this C++ tutorial, you shall learn about Division Assignment operator, its syntax, and how to use this operator, with examples.

C++ Division Assignment

In C++, Division Assignment Operator is used to find the division of the variable (left operand) by a value (right operand) and assign the resulting quotient to this variable (left operand).

The syntax to find the product of a value 2 with variable x and assign the result to x using Division Assignment Operator is

x /= 2


In the following example, we take a variable x with an initial value of 9, divide it with a value of 2 and assign the result back to x, using Division Assignment Operator.


#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main() {
    int x = 9;
    x /= 2;
    cout << "x : " << x << endl;


x : 4
Program ended with exit code: 0
