MongoDB $divide Operator

MongoDB provides different types of arithmetic expression operators that are used in the aggregation pipeline stages and $divide operator is one of them. This operator is used to divide one number by another number and return the result of the division.  

Syntax: 

{ $divide: [ <expression1>, <expression2> ] }

Here, in this operator, the arguments passed in an array.  And the first argument is a dividend and the second argument is a divisor.  The argument must be a valid expression until it resolves to a number. 

Examples:

In the following examples, we are working with:



Database: GeeksforGeeks

Collection: employee

Document: three documents that contain the details of the employees in the form of field-value pairs.

Divide using $divide operator:

In this example, we are going to divide the salary of the development department’s employees into half.

db.employee.aggregate([{$match: {department: "Development"}},
... {$project: {name: 1, halfSalary: {$divide: ["$salary", 2]}}}])


Divide using $divide operator in the embedded document:

In this example, we are going to divide the salary of the HR department’s employees into half.

db.employee.aggregate([{$match: {department: "HR"}},
... {$project: {name: 1, halfsalary:
               {$divide: ["$details.salary", 2]}}}])
