Decimal.Division(Decimal, Decimal) Operator

Definition

Divides two specified Decimal values.

``````public:
static System::Decimal operator /(System::Decimal d1, System::Decimal d2);``````
``public static decimal operator / (decimal d1, decimal d2);``
``static member ( / ) : decimal * decimal -> decimal``
``Public Shared Operator / (d1 As Decimal, d2 As Decimal) As Decimal``

d1
Decimal

The dividend.

d2
Decimal

The divisor.

Returns

Decimal

The result of dividing `d1` by `d2`.

Exceptions

`d2` is zero.

The return value is less than MinValue or greater than MaxValue.

Remarks

The Division method defines the operation of the division operator for Decimal values. It enables code such as the following:

``````using System;

public class Example
{
public static void Main()
{
Decimal number1 = 16.8m;
Decimal number2 = 4.1m;
Decimal number3 = number1 / number2;
Console.WriteLine("{0:N2} / {1:N2} = {2:N2}",
number1, number2, number3);
}
}
// The example displays the following output:
//        16.80 / 4.10 = 4.10
``````
``````Module Example
Public Sub Main()
Dim number1 As Decimal = 16.8d
Dim number2 As Decimal = 4.1d
Dim number3 As Decimal = number1 / number2
Console.WriteLine("{0:N2} / {1:N2} = {2:N2}",
number1, number2, number3)
End Sub
End Module
' The example displays the following output:
'       16.80 / 4.10 = 4.10
``````

If the language you're using doesn't support custom operators, call the Divide method instead.

The equivalent method for this operator is Decimal.Divide(Decimal, Decimal)
