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

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

Parameters

d1
Type: System.Decimal
A Decimal (the dividend).
d2
Type: System.Decimal
A Decimal (the divisor).

Return Value

Type: System.Decimal
The Decimal that is the result of dividing d1 by d2.

ExceptionCondition
DivideByZeroException

d2 is zero.

OverflowException

The return value (that is, the quotient) is less than MinValue or greater than MaxValue.

The following code example creates several pairs of Decimal values and calculates their quotients with the Divide method.

Module Example

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

   ' Display Decimal parameters and their product, quotient, and 
   ' remainder.
