# Decimal.Remainder Method

Silverlight

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

#### Return Value

Type: System.Decimal
The Decimal that is 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.

```
// Example of the decimal.Multiply, decimal.Divide, and
// decimal.Remainder methods.
using System;

class Example
{
const string dataFmt = "{0,-35}{1,31}";

// Display decimal parameters and their product, quotient, and
// remainder.
public static void ShowDecimalProQuoRem(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock, decimal Left, decimal Right)
{
outputBlock.Text += "\n";
outputBlock.Text += String.Format(dataFmt, "decimal Left", Left) + "\n";
outputBlock.Text += String.Format(dataFmt, "decimal Right", Right) + "\n";
outputBlock.Text += String.Format(dataFmt, "decimal.Multiply( Left, Right )",
decimal.Multiply(Left, Right)) + "\n";
outputBlock.Text += String.Format(dataFmt, "decimal.Divide( Left, Right )",
decimal.Divide(Left, Right)) + "\n";
outputBlock.Text += String.Format(dataFmt, "decimal.Remainder( Left, Right )",
decimal.Remainder(Left, Right)) + "\n";
}

public static void Demo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)
{
outputBlock.Text += "This example of the \n" +
"  decimal.Multiply( decimal, decimal ), \n" +
"  decimal.Divide( decimal, decimal ), and \n" +
"  decimal.Remainder( decimal, decimal ) \n" +
"methods generates the following output. It displays " +
"the product, \nquotient, and remainder of several " +
"pairs of decimal objects." + "\n";

// Create pairs of decimal objects.
ShowDecimalProQuoRem(outputBlock, 1000M, 7M);
ShowDecimalProQuoRem(outputBlock, -1000M, 7M);
ShowDecimalProQuoRem(outputBlock,
new decimal(1230000000, 0, 0, false, 7), 0.0012300M);
ShowDecimalProQuoRem(outputBlock, 12345678900000000M,
0.0000000012345678M);
ShowDecimalProQuoRem(outputBlock, 123456789.0123456789M,
123456789.1123456789M);
}
}
