Negates a specified BigInteger value.
Assembly: System.Numerics (in System.Numerics.dll)
Negation obtains the additive inverse of a number. The additive inverse of a number is a number that produces a value of zero when it is added to the original number.
The method is implemented for languages that do not support custom operators. Its behavior is identical to negation using the unary negation operator. In addition, the method is a useful substitute for the negation operator when instantiating a BigInteger variable, as shown in the following example.
The following example illustrates three ways to negate the value of a BigInteger object.
Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Windows 7, Windows Vista SP2, Windows Server 2008 (Server Core Role not supported), Windows Server 2008 R2 (Server Core Role supported with SP1 or later; Itanium not supported)
