    question: how to divide two floats

    I've looked around on the net and in a couple books, but I can't find a way in C++ to divide two floats. Anybody have ideas?

    It's simple.. make 2 floats and use the division operator.

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    int main() {
    	float a = 5.f;
    	float b = 2.2f;
    	float c = a/b;
    
    	std::cout << c << '\n';
    
    	return 0;
    }
    Perhaps you are stumbling over a more difficult problem, like changing ints to floats before the division, so things like 7/2 would result in the float value of 3.5 rather than the int value of 3?
