    Question Random numbers generator & Division algorithm

    Hello Guys,

    I am a new c learner. I have been trying to figure out this problem for hours. Learnt how the rand() works but could not be able to come up with the solution of this problem. Can any body help please ?

    Problem: Using random number generator generate two numbers n є [-50, 50] and p є [0, |n|] . Next using Division Algorithm find n div p, n mod p. Write relevant program.

    What have you tried so far, also read our homework policy. We will help you, but we won't do the assignment for you.
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    Why do you think that makes a difference?

    We still won't do it for you. Most of us are busy professional programmers, if you can't be bothered to make an effort then we can't be bothered to help you. Post the code you have tried and we will help you figure out why it isn't working.
