A method or operator returns when the result of an operation is undefined. For example, the result of dividing zero by zero is , as the following example shows. (But note that dividing a non-zero number by zero returns either PositiveInfinity or NegativeInfinity, depending on the sign of the divisor.)
In addition, a method call with a value or an operation on a value returns , as the following example shows.
Use the IsNaN method to determine whether a value is not a number. In general, Single operators cannot be used to compare with other Single values, although comparison methods (such as Equals and CompareTo) can. The following example illustrates the difference in behavior between Single comparison operators and methods.
