Divides two specified Decimal values.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public:
static Decimal operator /(
	Decimal d1, 
	Decimal d2
)

Parameters

d1
Type: System::Decimal

A Decimal (the dividend).

d2
Type: System::Decimal

A Decimal (the divisor).

Return Value

Type: System::Decimal
The Decimal result of d1 by d2.

ExceptionCondition
DivideByZeroException

d2 is zero.

OverflowException

The return value is less than MinValue or greater than MaxValue.

The following code example creates several pairs of Decimal values and calculates their quotients with the Division operator.

// Example of the Decimal multiplication, division, and modulus  
// operators. 
using namespace System;

// Display Decimal parameters and their product, quotient, and  
// remainder. 
void ShowDecimalProQuoRem( Decimal Left, Decimal Right )
{
   String^ dataFmt = "   {0,-18}{1,31}";
   Console::WriteLine();
   Console::WriteLine( dataFmt, "Decimal Left", Left );
   Console::WriteLine( dataFmt, "Decimal Right", Right );
   Console::WriteLine( dataFmt, "Left * Right", Left * Right );
   Console::WriteLine( dataFmt, "Left / Right", Left / Right );
   Console::WriteLine( dataFmt, "Left % Right", Left % Right );
}

int main()
{
   Console::WriteLine( "This example of the Decimal multiplication, division, " 
   "and modulus \noperators generates the following " 
   "output. It displays the product, \nquotient, and " 
   "remainder of several pairs of Decimal objects." );

   // Create pairs of Decimal objects.
   ShowDecimalProQuoRem( Decimal::Parse( "1000" ), Decimal::Parse( "7" ) );
   ShowDecimalProQuoRem( Decimal::Parse( "-1000" ), Decimal::Parse( "7" ) );
