Decimal Constructor (Int32)
[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]
Initializes a new instance of Decimal to a decimal value represented in binary and contained in a specified array.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
The binary representation of a Decimal number consists of a 1-bit sign, a 96-bit integer number, and a scaling factor used to divide the integer number and specify what portion of it is a decimal fraction. The scaling factor is implicitly the number 10, raised to an exponent ranging from 0 to 28.
bits is a four-element long array of 32-bit signed integers.
bits , bits , and bits  contain the low, middle, and high 32 bits of the 96-bit integer number.
bits  contains the scale factor and sign, and consists of following parts:
Bits 0 to 15, the lower word, are unused and must be zero.
Bits 16 to 23 must contain an exponent between 0 and 28, which indicates the power of 10 to divide the integer number.
Bits 24 to 30 are unused and must be zero.
Bit 31 contains the sign; 0 meaning positive, and 1 meaning negative.
A numeric value might have several possible binary representations; all are equally valid and numerically equivalent. Note that the bit representation differentiates between negative and positive zero. These values are treated as being equal in all operations.
