# Decimal.Divide Method

.NET Framework 1.1

Divides two specified Decimal values.

```[Visual Basic]
Public Shared Function Divide( _
ByVal d1 As Decimal, _
ByVal d2 As Decimal _
) As Decimal
[C#]
public static decimal Divide(
decimal d1,
decimal d2
);
[C++]
public: static Decimal Divide(
Decimal d1,
Decimal d2
);
[JScript]
public static function Divide(
d1 : Decimal,
d2 : Decimal
) : Decimal;```

#### Parameters

d1
A Decimal (the dividend).
d2
A Decimal (the divisor).

#### Return Value

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

#### Exceptions

Exception Type Condition
DivideByZeroException d2 is zero.
OverflowException The return value (that is, the quotient) is less than MinValue or greater than MaxValue.

#### Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following code example creates several pairs of Decimal values and calculates their quotients with the Divide method.
