Python: Division

I received an email message from HackerRank suggesting a Python challenge. The challenge is described in the following URL:  https://www.hackerrank.com/challenges/python-division?utm_campaign=challenge-recommendation&utm_medium=email&utm_source=24-hour-campaign

Following is the output from a console using Visual Studio 2013 Professional with the PTVS (Python Tools for Visual Studio) plug-in using the sample input data:

4 <== input data

3 <== input data

1

1.3333333333333333

Press any key to continue . . .

The actual code is short and simple (you could call it trivial):

if __name__ == ‘__main__’:

# **** read input ****

a = int(input())

b = int(input())

# **** divide and print ****

print(a // b)

print(float(a) / float(b))

The solution passed the 2 test cases.
