Hi Alexis!
In Python, quotient means the resultant(integer) of the division. Floor division(//) is used to get the quotient of the division whereas modulo(%) is for remainder.
For example,
20//3 = (6*3+2)//3 = 6
20%3 = 2

+ 3

quotient is a math term. quotient is to division as solution is to addition.
3 / 2
1.5 is the quotient

+ 3

In Division The number which we divide is called the dividend. The number by which we divide is called the divisor. The result obtained is called the quotient. The number left over is called the remainder.
Examples:
Input:
n = 10
m = 3
Output:
Quotient: 3
Remainder 1
Input
n = 99
m = 5
Output:
Quotient: 19
Remainder 4
