## Kotlin Division Assignment Operator

Kotlin Division Assignment Operator divides the left operand by right operand, and assigns the quotient to the left operand.

### Syntax

The syntax to use Division Assignment operator is

`x /= value`

where

`x`

is the variable name`/=`

is the symbol used for Division Assignment operator`value`

is the value that we would like to divide the variable`x`

with

The above expression is equivalent to

`x = x / value`

## Examples

### Divide the value in x by 5

In the following program, we take a variable: `x`

with an initial value of `21`

. Using Division Assignment operator, we divide the value in `x`

by `5`

.

**Kotlin Program**

```
fun main() {
var x = 21
x /= 5
println(x)
}
```

**Output**

`4`

**Explanation**

```
x /= 5
x = x / 5
x = 21 / 5
x = 4
```
