```

Code #1 : Example for /() method

 `# Ruby code for BigDecimal./() method`` ` `# loading BigDecimal``require ``'bigdecimal'`` ` `# declaring BigDecimal``a = ``42``.``1``**``13`` ` `# declaring BigDecimal``b = -BigDecimal(``"10"``)`` ` `# declaring BigDecimal``c = -(``22` `- ``7``.``1``) ** ``10`` ` `# DIVISION RESULTS``puts ``"BigDecimal a / b : #{a/b}\n\n"``puts ``"BigDecimal b / c : #{b/c}\n\n"``puts ``"BigDecimal a / c : #{c/a}\n\n"`

Output :

```BigDecimal a / b : -0.1305170490200644E21

BigDecimal b / c : 0.18541177684682144225059299930550753841140048E-10

BigDecimal a / c : -4.132334206571191e-10
```

Code #2 : Example for /() method

 `# Ruby code for BigDecimal./() method`` ` `# loading BigDecimal``require ``'bigdecimal'`` ` `# declaring BigDecimal``a = ``12``**``12` `- ``27`` ` `# declaring BigDecimal``b = BigDecimal(``'10'``)-(``22` `- ``7``.``1``) ** ``10`` ` `# declaring BigDecimal``c = BigDecimal(``'-3'``)`` ` `# DIVISION RESULTS``puts ``"BigDecimal a / b : #{a/b}\n\n"``puts ``"BigDecimal b / c : #{b/c}\n\n"``puts ``"BigDecimal a / c : #{c/a}\n\n"`

Output :

```BigDecimal a / b : -0.16531500266815313339085797797359551950417546414E2

BigDecimal b / c : 0.179780022065447E12
