# Decimal.Remainder Method

.NET Framework 4.6 and 4.5

Computes the remainder after dividing two Decimal values.

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

## Syntax

```public static decimal Remainder(
decimal d1,
decimal d2
)
```

#### 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 example uses the Remainder method to calculate the remainder in a series of division operations.

```using System;

public class Example
{
public static void Main()
{
// Create parallel arrays of Decimals to use as the dividend and divisor.
Decimal[] dividends = { 79m, 1000m, -1000m, 123m, 1234567800000m,
1234.0123m };
Decimal[] divisors = { 11m, 7m, 7m, .00123m, 0.12345678m, 1234.5678m };

for (int ctr = 0; ctr < dividends.Length; ctr++)
{
Decimal dividend = dividends[ctr];
Decimal divisor = divisors[ctr];
Console.WriteLine("{0:N3} / {1:N3} = {2:N3} Remainder {3:N3}", dividend,
divisor, Decimal.Divide(dividend, divisor),
Decimal.Remainder(dividend, divisor));
}
}
}
// The example displays the following output:
//       79.000 / 11.000 = 7.182 Remainder 2.000
//       1,000.000 / 7.000 = 142.857 Remainder 6.000
//       -1,000.000 / 7.000 = -142.857 Remainder -6.000
//       123.000 / 0.001 = 100,000.000 Remainder 0.000
//       1,234,567,800,000.000 / 0.123 = 10,000,000,000,000.000 Remainder 0.000
//       1,234.012 / 1,234.568 = 1.000 Remainder 1,234.012
```
