/= Operator

The division assignment operator.

lhs /= expr

Where:

lhs
A storage location, property, or indexer.
expr
An expression.

Remarks

An expression using the /= assignment operator, such as

x /= y

is equivalent to

x = x / y

except that x is only evaluated once. The / operator is predefined for numeric types to perform division.

The /= operator cannot be overloaded directly, but user-defined types can overload the / operator (see operator).

Example

// cs_operator_division_assignment.cs
using System;
class Test 
{
   public static void Main() 
   {
      int a = 5;
      a /= 6;
      Console.WriteLine(a);
      double b = 5;
      b /= 6;
      Console.WriteLine(b);
   }
}

Output

0
0.833333333333333
