Remarks

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

using System;

public class Example
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      Decimal number1 = 120.07m;
      Decimal number2 = 163.19m;
      Decimal number3 = number1 - number2;
      Console.WriteLine("{0} - {1} = {2}", 
                        number1, number2, number3);
   }
}
// The example displays the following output:
//        120.07 - 163.19 = -43.12
Module Example
   Public Sub Main()
      Dim number1 As Decimal = 120.07d 
      Dim number2 As Decimal = 163.19d 
      Dim number3 As Decimal = number1 - number2
      Console.WriteLine("{0} - {1} = {2}", 
                        number1, number2, number3)
   End Sub
End Module
' The example displays the following output:
'       120.07 - 163.19 = -43.12

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

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