    Default Please describe the output of the following program!

    class Typecast
    {
    	public static void main(String p[])
    	{
     
    		int m=45;
    		int y=23;
     
    		int h=m/y; 
    		System.out.println(h);		
     
    		/*
    		float r=m/f;
    		System.out.println(r);
                    */
    	}
    }
    after executing this program,i got value of h as 1.
    next, executing the part which is in comments gave me 1.0

    after m/y operation, the output value is a literal which is either a double or int. but my output is coming both times. so what is the value of m/y?? int or float??

    The code is using integer division so 4/3 = 1 and 2/4 = 0.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
