## Examples

The following code example creates several pairs of Decimal values and calculates their quotients with the Division operator.

```
Module Example
Const dataFmt As String = "{0,-38}{1,31}"

Sub ShowDecimalProQuoRem(ByVal outputBlock As System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock, _
ByVal Left As Decimal, ByVal Right As Decimal)
outputBlock.Text &= String.Format(dataFmt, "Decimal Left", Left) & vbCrLf
outputBlock.Text &= String.Format(dataFmt, "Decimal Right", Right) & vbCrLf

outputBlock.Text &= String.Format(dataFmt, _
"Decimal.op_Multiply( Left, Right )", _
Decimal.op_Multiply(Left, Right)) & vbCrLf
outputBlock.Text &= String.Format(dataFmt, _
"Decimal.op_Division( Left, Right )", _
Decimal.op_Division(Left, Right)) & vbCrLf
outputBlock.Text &= String.Format(dataFmt, _
"Decimal.op_Modulus( Left, Right )", _
Decimal.op_Modulus(Left, Right)) & vbCrLf & vbCrLf
End Sub
