What is the easiest way to get the first number as boolean?

divmod(99.6, 30.1)

Or do I have to say:

flote, rem=divmod(99.6, 30.1)
bool(flote)

divmod returns a 2-tuple:

>>> divmod(99.6,30.1)

(3.0, 9.2999999999999901)

Therefore, you can subscript the return value to get either
element:

>>> divmod(99.6,30.1)[0]

3.0

Thus, you can call bool() on the subscripted value to convert
this to True-if-not-zero False-if-zero:

>>> bool(divmod(99.6,30.1)[0])

True

divmod returns a tuple, so:

bool(divmod(99.6, 30.1)[0])

divmod(x,y) == x//y, x%y

so bool(x//y)
