Decimal.Compare() Method in C#

This method is used to compare two specified Decimal values.

Syntax: public static int Compare (decimal a1, decimal a2);

Parameters:
a1:This parameter specifies the first value to compare.
a2:This parameter specifies the second value to compare.

Return Value: It returns a signed number indicating the relative values of a1 & a2.

  • If the value is less than zero, it means a1 is less than a2.
  • If the value is greater than zero, it means a1 is greater than a2.
  • If the value is zero, it means a1 is equal to a2.

Below programs illustrate the use of Decimal.Compare(Decimal, Decimal) Method

Example 1: When a1 is greater than a2.
