BigInteger::Equals Method (Int64)

Returns a value that indicates whether the current instance and a signed 64-bit integer have the same value.

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

bool Equals(
	long long other


Type: System::Int64
The signed 64-bit integer value to compare.

Return Value

Type: System::Boolean
true if the signed 64-bit integer and the current instance have the same value; otherwise, false.

If other is a Byte, Int16, Int32, SByte, UInt16, or UInt32 value, it is implicitly converted to an Int64 value when the method is called.

To determine the relationship between the two objects instead of just testing for equality, call the BigInteger::CompareTo(Int64) method.

The following example instantiates a BigInteger object from each integral type except UInt64. It then calls the Equals(Int64) method to compare the BigInteger value with the original integer value that was passed to the BigInteger constructor. As the output shows, the values are equal in each case.
