Decimal.Negate() Method in C#

This method is used to get the result of multiplying the specified Decimal value by negative one.

Syntax: public static decimal Negate (decimal a);

Parameter:
a: This parameter specifies the decimal which will be converted.



Return Value: A decimal number with the value of a, but the opposite sign. But zero, if a is zero.

        // using Negate() method;
        Decimal value = Decimal.Negate(a);
  
        // Display the negative value
        Console.WriteLine("The negative value "+
                             "is : {0}", value);
    }
}
