BigInteger.Subtraction(BigInteger, BigInteger) BigInteger.Subtraction(BigInteger, BigInteger) BigInteger.Subtraction(BigInteger, BigInteger) BigInteger.Subtraction(BigInteger, BigInteger) Operator

Definition

Subtracts a BigInteger value from another BigInteger value.

public:
 static System::Numerics::BigInteger operator -(System::Numerics::BigInteger left, System::Numerics::BigInteger right);
public static System.Numerics.BigInteger operator - (System.Numerics.BigInteger left, System.Numerics.BigInteger right);
static member ( - ) : System.Numerics.BigInteger * System.Numerics.BigInteger -> System.Numerics.BigInteger
Public Shared Operator - (left As BigInteger, right As BigInteger) As BigInteger

Parameters

left
BigInteger BigInteger BigInteger BigInteger

The value to subtract from (the minuend).

right
BigInteger BigInteger BigInteger BigInteger

The value to subtract (the subtrahend).

Returns

The result of subtracting right from left.

Remarks

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

BigInteger num1 = 100045632194;
BigInteger num2 = 90329434;
BigInteger result = num1 - num2;
Dim num1 As BigInteger = 100045632194
Dim num2 As BigInteger = 90329434
Dim result As BigInteger = num1 - num2

Languages that do not support custom operators can call the BigInteger.Subtract method instead.

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