Decimal.Divide(Decimal, Decimal) Method

Definition

Divides two specified Decimal values.

public:
 static System::Decimal Divide(System::Decimal d1, System::Decimal d2);
public static decimal Divide (decimal d1, decimal d2);
static member Divide : decimal * decimal -> decimal
Public Shared Function Divide (d1 As Decimal, d2 As Decimal) As Decimal

Parameters

d1
Decimal

The dividend.

d2
Decimal

The divisor.

Returns

The result of dividing d1 by d2.

Exceptions

d2 is zero.

The return value (that is, the quotient) is less than MinValue or greater than MaxValue.

Examples

The following example calls the Divide method to divide a range of values by 22.1.

using System;

public class Example
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      // Divide a series of numbers by 22.1
      Decimal dividend = 1230.0m;
      Decimal divisor = 22.1m;
      for (int ctr = 0; ctr <= 10; ctr++) {
         Console.WriteLine("{0:N1} / {1:N1} = {2:N4}", dividend, divisor,
                           Decimal.Divide(dividend, divisor));
         dividend += .1m; 
      }
   }
}
// The example displays the following output:
//       1,230.0 / 22.1 = 55.6561
//       1,230.1 / 22.1 = 55.6606
//       1,230.2 / 22.1 = 55.6652
//       1,230.3 / 22.1 = 55.6697
//       1,230.4 / 22.1 = 55.6742
//       1,230.5 / 22.1 = 55.6787
//       1,230.6 / 22.1 = 55.6833
//       1,230.7 / 22.1 = 55.6878
//       1,230.8 / 22.1 = 55.6923
//       1,230.9 / 22.1 = 55.6968
//       1,231.0 / 22.1 = 55.7014
Module Example

      Dim divisor As Decimal = 22.1d
      For ctr As Integer = 0 To 10
         Console.WriteLine("{0:N1} / {1:N1} = {2:N4}", dividend, divisor,
                           Decimal.Divide(dividend, divisor))
         dividend += .1d 
      Next
   End Sub
