 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 / (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 integral result of the division.

Exceptions

Examples

The following example creates an array of BigInteger values. It then uses each element as the quotient in a division operation that uses the Divide method, the division operator (/), and the DivRem method.

using System.Numerics;

Remarks

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

BigInteger num1 = 100045632194;
BigInteger num2 = 90329434;
BigInteger quotient = num1 / num2;
Dim num1 As BigInteger = 100045632194
Dim num2 As BigInteger = 90329434
Dim quotient As BigInteger = num1 / num2

Languages that do not support custom operators and operator overloading can call the Divide method instead.

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