BigInteger.Modulus(BigInteger, BigInteger) BigInteger.Modulus(BigInteger, BigInteger) BigInteger.Modulus(BigInteger, BigInteger) BigInteger.Modulus(BigInteger, BigInteger) Operator

Definition

Returns the remainder that results from division with two specified BigInteger values.

public:
 static System::Numerics::BigInteger operator %(System::Numerics::BigInteger dividend, System::Numerics::BigInteger divisor);
public static System.Numerics.BigInteger operator % (System.Numerics.BigInteger dividend, System.Numerics.BigInteger divisor);
static member ( % ) : System.Numerics.BigInteger * System.Numerics.BigInteger -> System.Numerics.BigInteger
Public Shared Operator Mod (dividend As BigInteger, divisor As BigInteger) As BigInteger

Parameters

dividend
BigInteger BigInteger BigInteger BigInteger

The value to be divided.

divisor
BigInteger BigInteger BigInteger BigInteger

The value to divide by.

Returns

The remainder that results from the division.

Exceptions

Remarks

The Modulus method defines the operation of the modulus operator for BigInteger values. It enables code such as the following:

BigInteger num1 = 100045632194;
BigInteger num2 = 90329434;
BigInteger remainder = num1 % num2;
Console.WriteLine(remainder);           // Displays 50948756
Dim num1 As BigInteger = 100045632194
Dim num2 As BigInteger = 90329434
Dim remainder As BigInteger = num1 Mod num2
Console.WriteLine(remainder)                 ' Displays  50948756 

Languages that do not support custom operators can call the BigInteger.Remainder method instead.

The sign of the value returned by the modulus operation depends on the sign of dividend: If dividend is positive, the modulus operation returns a positive result; if it is negative, the modulus operation returns a negative result. The behavior of the modulus operation with BigInteger values is identical to the modulus operation with other integral types.

The equivalent method for this operator is BigInteger.Remainder(BigInteger, BigInteger).
