simple program giving me issues:

All I want to do is divide the smaller number into the larger one. I has no issues test and getting the right answer. Now I wanted to pass the remainder and this is where the issues came.

After I can effectively get the remainder passed to (int sum2) I want to divide the smaller remainder into the larger one until the remainder is 0. I'll use a "while" statement for this.

Right now if I divide 9 / 3 = 0 r 3

3 / 9 = 0 r 3

5 / 5 = **32767 R 1606416048**

This is a very simple program and I going in circles here. Can anyone help.

Code:

int remainder (int, int); // function protoype //

#include <stdio.h>

int remainder(int x, int y) // function header //

{

int sum1, sum2;

if (x > y) { // the lesser divided into the highier //

sum1 = y / x;

sum2 = y%x; // the remainder is passed to sum2 //

}

if (y > x) {

sum1 = x / y;

sum2 = x%y;

}

return printf("The answer is %d and the remainder is %d", sum1, sum2);

}

int main(int argc, const char * argv[])

{

int x,y;

printf("Enter two numbers\n");

scanf("%d%d",&x, &y);

remainder(x, y); // function called //

return 0;

}
