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

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.
