Java BigDecimal divideToIntegral method example

     

In this example working of divideToIntegral(BigDecimal divisor, MathContext mc) method is shown. Method divides the bigdecimal class object value on which it is invoked, by the bigdecimal class object value passed inside the parentheses of the method. Shortly it can said as method divides this.object value by the value of object passed.

The scale of the quotient is the scale of the value of object in which the method is invoked minus the scale of the value of object specified. In short scale of quotient is (this.object value scale) - (object.value scale). Method returns an bigdecimal object value as per defined settings inside object mc. 

The  'quotient' value will always possess integer format. This means method will only generate the integer part, i.e. the portion of 'quotient' genereated before decimal. 
Method throws Arithmetic Exception when the divisor value is equal to zero.

Syntax for using the method:

public BigDecimal divide(BigDecimal divisor, int scale, int roundingMode)

System.out.println(bigdecimalObject_dividendName.divide(bigdecimalobject_divisorName, 0, mc));   

Java_BigDecimal_divideToIntegral_Bigdecimal_divisor_MathContext_mc.java

import java.math.BigDecimal;
import java.math.MathContext;

public class Java_BigDecimal_divideToIntegral_Bigdecimal_divisor_MathContext_mc {
  public static void main(String args[]) {

  BigDecimal deadly = new BigDecimal(500);
  BigDecimal isolation = new BigDecimal(3);

  
  MathContext mc = new MathContext(0);
  mc = MathContext.DECIMAL64;
  
  BigDecimal rogue = deadly.divideToIntegralValue(isolation, mc),
  saints[] = deadly.divideAndRemainder(isolation);
  System.out.println("Java Bigdecimal class \n\tdivideToIntegral" +
  "(Bigdecimal divisor" " Mathcontext mc) method example");
  System.out.println("\nBigdecimal class, rogue object values "
  "\nQuotient(part before decimal) : " + rogue
  "\nRemainder : " + saints[1]);
  }
}
