Decimal.Remainder Method

Computes the remainder after dividing two Decimal values.

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

public static decimal Remainder(
	decimal d1,
	decimal d2


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

Return Value

Type: System.Decimal
The Decimal that is the remainder after dividing d1 by d2.


d2 is zero.


The return value is less than MinValue or greater than MaxValue.

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";

This example of the
  decimal.Multiply( decimal, decimal ),
  decimal.Divide( decimal, decimal ), and
  decimal.Remainder( decimal, decimal )
methods generates the following output. It displays the product,
quotient, and remainder of several pairs of decimal objects.
