Decimal.Modulus Operator

Returns the remainder resulting from dividing two specified Decimal values.

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

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 remainder resulting from dividing d1 by d2.

ExceptionCondition
DivideByZeroException

d2 is zero.

OverflowException

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

The Modulus method defines the operation of the modulus operator for Decimal values. It enables code such as the following:

using System;

public class Example
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      Decimal number1 = 16.8m;
      Decimal number2 = 4.1m;
      Decimal number3 = number1 % number2;
      Console.WriteLine("{0:N2} % {1:N2} = {2:N2}", 
                        number1, number2, number3);
   }
}
// The example displays the following output: 
//        16.80 % 4.10 = 0.40

If the language you're using doesn't support custom operators, call the Remainder method instead.

The sign of the value return by the modulus operation depends on the sign of dividend. If dividend is positive, the modulus operation returns a positive result; if it is negative, the modulus operation returns a negative result.
