# Decimal.UnaryNegation(Decimal) Operator

## Definition

Negates the value of the specified Decimal operand.

```
public:
static System::Decimal operator -(System::Decimal d);
```

`public static decimal operator - (decimal d);`

`static member ( ~- ) : decimal -> decimal`

`Public Shared Operator - (d As Decimal) As Decimal`

#### Parameters

- d
- Decimal

The value to negate.

#### Returns

The result of `d`

multiplied by negative one (-1).

## Remarks

The UnaryPlus method defines the operation of the unary negation operator (or the additive inverse operator) for Decimal values. The operation produces a value that results in 0 (zero) when it is added to the original number. Languages that do not support custom operators can call the Negate method instead.

The equivalent method for this operator is Decimal.Negate(Decimal)
