Code #1 : Example for number_class() method

 `# Python Program explaining ``# number_class() method`` ` `# loading decimal library``from` `decimal ``import` `*`` ` ` ` `# Initializing a decimal value``a ``=` `Decimal(``-``1``)`` ` `b ``=` `Decimal(``'0.142857'``)`` ` `# printing Decimal values``print` `(``"Decimal value a : "``, a)``print` `(``"Decimal value b : "``, b)`` ` ` ` `# Using Decimal.number_class() method``print` `(``"\n\nDecimal a with number_class() method : "``, a.number_class())`` ` `print` `(``"Decimal b with number_class() method : "``, b.number_class())`

Output :

```Decimal value a :  -1
Decimal value b :  0.142857

Decimal a with number_class() method :  -Normal
Decimal b with number_class() method :  +Normal

```

Code #2 : Example for number_class() method

 `# Python Program explaining ``# number_class() method`` ` `# loading decimal library``from` `decimal ``import` `*`` ` ` ` `# Initializing a decimal value``a ``=` `Decimal(``'-3.14'``)`` ` `b ``=` `Decimal(``'321e + 5'``)`` ` `# printing Decimal values``print` `(``"Decimal value a : "``, a)``print` `(``"Decimal value b : "``, b)`` ` ` ` `# Using Decimal.number_class() method``print` `(``"\n\nDecimal a with number_class() method : "``, a.number_class())`` ` `print` `(``"Decimal b with number_class() method : "``, b.number_class())`
