### program 1

100 REM DIVISION200 PRINT “DIVIDEND”, “DIVISOR”, “QUOTIENT”

300 PRINT

400 READ A,B

500 IF A = 99 THEN 1000

550 LET C = A/B

600 PRINT A,B,C

700 GO TO 400

800 DATA 6,3,12,4,25,5,16,8

900 DATA 63,9,36,6,30,5,8,2

999 DATA 99,99

1000 END

Results:

DIVIDEND | DIVISOR | QUOTIENT | |

6 | 3 | 2 |

### Explanation—program 1

- Line 200 Teaches the student what the terms in division are called. The column print out also helps to define them.
- Line 500 When A is being read in the data statement as 99 the program will automatically end.

### program 2

10 REM FIND THE MILES PER GALLON20 PRINT “TYPE IN MILES AND GALLONS”

30 INPUT M,G

40 IF M = 99 THEN 90

50 LET P = M/G

60 PRINT “MILES=”; M; “GALLONS=”; G

70 PRINT “MPG=”; P

80 GO TO 30

90 END

Results:

TYPE IN MILES AND GALLONS

MILES = 60 | GALLONS = 2 |

### Explanation—program 2

- Line 60 A “PRINT” statement with the equal sign after it allows for the variable to have a label. I used a semicolon to keep the spacing close together.
- Line 70 I used another “PRINT” statement so the answer to the formula would show below the numbers
