Visual Studio 2010

Divides two specified Decimal values.

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

## Syntax

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

#### Parameters

d1
Type: System::Decimal
The dividend.
d2
Type: System::Decimal
The divisor.

#### Return Value

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

## Exceptions

ExceptionCondition
DivideByZeroException

d2 is zero.

OverflowException

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

## Examples

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" ) );
ShowDecimalProQuoRem( Decimal(1230000000,0,0,false,7), Decimal::Parse( "0.0012300" ) );
ShowDecimalProQuoRem( Decimal::Parse( "12345678900000000" ), Decimal::Parse( "0.0000000012345678" ) );
ShowDecimalProQuoRem( Decimal::Parse( "123456789.0123456789" ), Decimal::Parse( "123456789.1123456789" ) );
}
