# Decimal.Modulus(Decimal, Decimal) Operator

## Definition

Returns the remainder resulting from dividing two specified Decimal values.

public:
static System::Decimal operator %(System::Decimal d1, System::Decimal d2);
public:
static System::Decimal operator %(System::Decimal d1, System::Decimal d2) = System::Numerics::IModulusOperators<System::Decimal, System::Decimal, System::Decimal>::op_Modulus;
public static decimal operator % (decimal d1, decimal d2);
static member ( % ) : decimal * decimal -> decimal
Public Shared Operator Mod (d1 As Decimal, d2 As Decimal) As Decimal

d1
Decimal

The dividend.

d2
Decimal

The divisor.

#### Returns

Decimal

The remainder resulting from dividing d1 by d2.

#### Exceptions

d2 is zero.

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

## Remarks

The Modulus operator defines the remainder operation that returns the remainder resulting from dividing two specified 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 = 0.40
let number1 = 16.8m
let number2 = 4.1m
let number3 = number1 % number2
printfn \$"{number1:N2} %% {number2:N2} = {number3:N2}"

// The example displays the following output:
//        16.80 % 4.10 = 0.40
Module Example
Public Sub Main()
Dim number1 As Decimal = 16.8d
Dim number2 As Decimal = 4.1d
Dim number3 As Decimal = number1 Mod number2
Console.WriteLine("{0:N2} Mod {1:N2} = {2:N2}",
number1, number2, number3)
End Sub
End Module
' The example displays the following output:
'       16.80 Mod 4.10 = 0.40

The sign of the value returned by the remainder operation depends on the sign of dividend. If dividend is positive, the remainder operation returns a positive result; if it is negative, the remainder operation returns a negative result.

The equivalent method for this operator is Decimal.Remainder(Decimal, Decimal). If the language you're using doesn't support custom operators, call the Remainder method instead.
