Trouble with simple Assembly

Trouble with simple Assembly

Trouble with simple Assembly

(OP)
So I wrote these simple multiplication and devision assembly programs.. I'm getting some errors I don't really understand... my multiplication program always outputs 0... and the division one I'm not even sure what it's doing...
Anyways here's the code:

Multiplication:

       .BEGIN
                IN              A   
                IN              B  
                CLEAR           COUNT
                CLEAR           SUM
LOOP:           LOAD            B
                COMPARE         COUNT
                JUMPGT          PRINT
                LOAD            SUM
                ADD             A
                INCREMENT       COUNT
                JUMP            LOOP
PRINT:          OUT             SUM
                HALT
A:              .DATA           0  
B:              .DATA           0
COUNT:          .DATA           0
SUM:            .DATA           0
        .END
             

Division:

 .BEGIN
                IN              A
                IN              B
                CLEAR           Q
                LOAD            A
                STORE           R
LOOP:           LOAD            B
                COMPARE         R
                JUMPLT          PRINT
                LOAD            R
                SUBTRACT        B
                INCREMENT       Q
                JUMP            LOOP
PRINT:          OUT             Q
                OUT             R
                HALT
A:              .DATA           0
B:              .DATA           0
Q:              .DATA           0
R:              .DATA           0
                .END




Thanks for your time.

Just a FYI: some of the indentation is messed up due to me copying it to the board.. the indentation is correct in the actual program
