Single.IsNegativeInfinity() Method in C# with Examples

In C#, Single.IsNegativeInfinity(Single) is a Single struct method. This method is used to check whether a specified floating-point value evaluates to negative infinity or not. In some floating point operation, it is possible to obtain a result that is negative infinity. For Example: If any negative value is divided by zero, it results in negative infinity.

Syntax: public static bool IsNegativeInfinity (float f);
f: It is a single-precision floating-point number of type System.Single.

Return Type: This function return a boolean value True, if specified value evaluates to negative infinity, otherwise return False.

Example: To demonstrate the Single.IsNegativeInfinity(Single) Method:





// C# program to illustrate the
// Single.IsNegativeInfinity(Single)
// Method
using System;
class GFG {
    // Main method
    static public void Main()
        // Dividing a negative number by zero
        // results in Negative infinity.
        // Dividing a number directly by 0
        // produces an error
        // So 0 is stored in a variable first
        float zero = 0.0f;
        float value = -5f;
        float result = value / zero;
        // Printing result
        // Check result using IsNegativeInfinity() Method
        // Result of floating point operation
        // that is less than Single.MinValue
        // is Negative Infinity
        result = Single.MinValue * 7.9f;
        // Printing result
        // Check result using IsNegativeInfinity() Method





  • The result of any floating point operation that is less than Single.MinValue is considered as Negative Infinity.
  • Floating-point operation return PositiveInfinity or NegativeInfinity to indicate the overflow condition.
