# Decimal.Divide() Method in C#

This method is used to divide the two specified decimal values.

Syntax: public static decimal Divide (decimal a1, decimal a2);

Parameters:
a1: This parameter specifies the divdend.
a2: This parameter specifies the divisor.

Return Value: The result of dividing a1 by a2.

Exceptions:

• DivideByZeroException: This occurs when a2 is zero.
• OverflowException: If the result of dividing a1 and a2 is less than smallest possible value of Decimal or greater than the largest possible value of Decimal.

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

Example 1:

 `// C# program to demonstrate the ` `// Decimal.Divide(Decimal, ` `// Decimal) Method ` `using` `System; ` ` `  `class` `GFG { ` ` `  `    ``// Main Method ` `    ``public` `static` `void` `Main() ` `    ``{ ` `        ``try` `{ ` ` `  `            ``// Declaring the decimal variables ` `            ``Decimal a1 = 4.02m; ` `            ``Decimal a2 = 2.01m; ` ` `  `            ``// dividing the two Decimal value ` `            ``// using Divide() method; ` `            ``Decimal value = Decimal.Divide(a1, a2); ` ` `  `            ``// Display the division ` `            ``Console.WriteLine(``"Result of "``+ ` `                 ``"division : {0}"``, value); ` `        ``} ` ` `  `        ``catch` `(OverflowException e)  ` `        ``{ ` `            ``Console.Write(``"Exception Thrown: "``); ` `            ``Console.Write(``"{0}"``, e.GetType(), e.Message); ` `        ``} ` `    ``} ` `} `

Output:

```Result of division : 2
```

Example 2: Program for OverflowException

 `// C# program to demonstrate the ` `// Decimal.Divide(Decimal,  ` `// Decimal) Method ` `using` `System; ` ` `  `class` `GFG { ` ` `  `    ``// Main Method ` `    ``public` `static` `void` `Main() ` `    ``{ ` `        ``try` `{ ` ` `  `            ``// Declaring the decimal variables ` `            ``Decimal a1 = Decimal.MaxValue; ` `            ``Decimal a2 = 0.01m; ` ` `  `            ``// dividing the two Decimal value ` `            ``// using Divide() method; ` `            ``Decimal value = Decimal.Divide(a1, a2); ` ` `  `            ``// Display the division ` `            ``Console.WriteLine(``"Result of "``+ ` `                  ``"division : {0}"``, value); ` `        ``} ` ` `  `        ``catch` `(OverflowException e)  ` `        ``{ ` `            ``Console.Write(``"Exception Thrown: "``); ` `            ``Console.Write(``"{0}"``, e.GetType(), e.Message); ` `        ``} ` `    ``} ` `} `

Output:

```Exception Thrown: System.OverflowException
```

Example 3: Program for DivideByZeroException

 `// C# program to demonstrate the ` `// Decimal.Divide(Decimal, ` `// Decimal) Method ` `using` `System; ` ` `  `class` `GFG { ` ` `  `    ``// Main Method ` `    ``public` `static` `void` `Main() ` `    ``{ ` `        ``try` `{ ` ` `  `            ``// Declaring the decimal variables ` `            ``Decimal a1 = 4.02m; ` `            ``Decimal a2 = 0.00m; ` ` `  `            ``// dividing the two Decimal value ` `            ``// using Divide() method; ` `            ``Decimal value = Decimal.Divide(a1, a2); ` ` `  `            ``// Display the division ` `            ``Console.WriteLine(``"Result of"``+ ` `                ``" division : {0}"``, value); ` `        ``} ` ` `  `        ``catch` `(DivideByZeroException e) ` `        ``{ ` `            ``Console.Write(``"Exception Thrown: "``); ` `            ``Console.Write(``"{0}"``, e.GetType(), e.Message); ` `        ``} ` `    ``} ` `} `

Output:

```Exception Thrown: System.DivideByZeroException
```
