The program below is the answer to Deitel's Java How to Program (9th Edition) Chapter 2 Exercise 2.26.

Question: Write an application that reads two integers, determines whether the first is a multiple of the second and prints the result. [Hint: Use the remainder operator.]

 * This Program Determines Whether The First Number Is A Multiple Of The Second Number

import java.util.Scanner;

public class Ex02_26 {
    public static void main (String [] args) {

 Scanner numbers = new Scanner (;        

 int num1;
        int num2; 
        int check;
        System.out.print ("Enter First Number: ");
        num1 = numbers.nextInt();
        System.out.print ("Enter Second Number: ");
        num2 = numbers.nextInt();
        check = num2%num1;
        System.out.println ();
        if (check == 0)
            System.out.printf ("The Number %d is a multiple of %d", num1, num2);
            System.out.printf ("The Number %d is not a multiple of %d", num1, num2);
