```public:
static bool operator >=(
Decimal d1,
Decimal d2
)
```

#### Parameters

d1

d2

#### Return Value

Type: System::Boolean

true if d1 is greater than or equal to d2; otherwise, false.

## Remarks

The GreaterThanOrEqual method defines the operation of the greater than or equal operator for Decimal values. It enables code such as the following:

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

Languages that do not support custom operators can call the Compare method instead. They may also be able to call the GreaterThanOrEqual method directly, as the following example shows.

```Module Example
Public Sub Main()
Dim number1 As Decimal = 16354.0699d
Dim number2 As Decimal = 16354.0695d
Console.WriteLine("{0} >= {1}: {2}", number1, number2,
Decimal.op_GreaterThanOrEqual(number1, number2))

number1 = Decimal.Round(number1, 2)
number2 = Decimal.Round(number2, 2)
Console.WriteLine("{0} >= {1}: {2}", number1, number2,
Decimal.op_GreaterThanOrEqual(number1, number2))
End Sub
End Module
' The example displays the following output:
'       16354.0699 >= 16354.0695: True
'       16354.07 >= 16354.07: True
```
