Java BigDecimal divideToIntegral example

     

In this example working of divideToIntegral(BigDecimal divisor) 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).

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

Syntax for using the method:

public BigDecimal divide(BigDecimal divisor)

System.out.println(bigdecimalObject_dividendName.divide(bigdecimalobject_divisorName));

Java_BigDecimal_divideToIntegral_Bigdecimal_divisor.java

import java.math.BigDecimal;

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

  BigDecimal susan = new BigDecimal(400);
  BigDecimal nelson = new BigDecimal(3);

  BigDecimal Planetarium = 
  susan.divideToIntegralValue(nelson), ancient[] = susan

  .divideAndRemainder(nelson);
  System.out.println
  (
"Java Bigdecimal class \n\tdivideToIntegral(Bigdecimal divisor"
  ") method example");
  System.out.println("\nBigdecimal class, Planetarium object values "
  "\nQuotient(part before decimal) : " + Planetarium
  "\nRemainder : " + ancient[1]);
  }
}
