# How to Divide in Python

The divide operator in the Python programming language is `/`

(forward slash). Pass the numbers to divide on the left and right side of the divide operator and store the result in a variable.

```
output = 10 / 3
print(output)
```

```
3.3333333333333335
```

The integer divider operator in Python is `//`

(two forward slashes). It will divide two number and round the result down to the nearest integer. This operator always rounds the result down.

```
output = 10 // 3

```

```
