Dividing a floating-point value by zero doesn't throw an exception; it results in positive infinity, negative infinity, or not a number (NaN), according to the rules of IEEE 754 arithmetic. Because the following example uses floating-point division rather than integer division, the operation does not throw aexception.
The following Microsoft intermediate language (MSIL) instructions throw:
uses the HRESULT COR_E_DIVIDEBYZERO, which has the value 0x80020012.
