8085 is a Microprocessor which was developed by Intel in 1970s. All the instructions in this microprocessor are encoded in a single byte. Some of the instructions are followed by one or two bytes of data, which can be a memory address, an immediate operand or a port number.

In this post, we will write a program in 8085 to divide a 16-bit number with an 8-bit number.

### Algorithm

Start Read dividend(16 bit) Read divisor count <- 8 Left shift dividend Subtract divisor from upper 8-bits of dividend If CS != 1 go to 9 restore dividend Increment lower 8-bits of dividend count <- count - 1 If count != 0 go to 5 Store upper 8-bit dividend as remainder and lower 8-bit as quotient Stop

### Flow Chart

### Program

LHLD 2100H LDA 2102H MOV B, A MVI C, 08H BACK: DAD H MOV A, H SUB B JC NEXT MOV H, A INR L NEXT: DCR C JNZ BACK SHLD 2103H RST-5

### Example

2100H: 0C 2101H: 00 2102H: 07 2103H: 01 -> quotient 2104H: 05 -> remainder
