BigInteger negate() Method in Java

Prerequisite: BigInteger Basics
The java.math.BigInteger.negate() method returns a BigInteger whose value is (- this). negate() method will change the singned bit of BigInteger.

Syntax:

public BigInteger negate()

Parameters: The method does not accept any parameter.



Return Value: The method returns the operation of (- this).

Examples:

Input: value = 2300
Output: -2300
Explanation:
Binary signed 2's complement of 2300 = 0000100011111100
Singed bit are 0000
change sing bit to 1111
so negate of 0000100011111100 in signed 2's complement is 1111011100000100
Decimal value = -2300.

Input: value = 567689 
Output: -567689
