Visual Studio 2010

Computes the remainder after dividing two Decimal values.

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

## Syntax

```'Declaration
Public Shared Function Remainder ( _
d1 As Decimal, _
d2 As Decimal _
) As Decimal
```

#### Parameters

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

#### Return Value

Type: System.Decimal
The remainder after 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 the remainders resulting from dividing the two values with the Remainder method.

```
Module DecimalMulDivRemDemo
Const dataFmt As String = "{0,-35}{1,31}"

' Display Decimal parameters and their product, quotient, and
' remainder.
Sub ShowDecimalProQuoRem(left as Decimal, right as Decimal)
Console.WriteLine()
Console.WriteLine(dataFmt, "Decimal left", left )
Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "Decimal right", right )
Console.WriteLine( dataFmt,
"Decimal.Multiply( left, right )",
Decimal.Multiply( left, right ) )
Console.WriteLine( dataFmt,
"Decimal.Divide( left, right )",
Decimal.Divide( left, right ) )
Console.WriteLine( dataFmt,
"Decimal.Remainder( left, right )",
Decimal.Remainder( left, right ) )
End Sub
