Advertisements


Description

The java.math.BigDecimal.divideToIntegralValue(BigDecimal divisor) returns a BigDecimal whose value is the integer part of the quotient (this / divisor) rounded down. The preferred scale of the result is (this.scale() - divisor.scale()).

Declaration

Following is the declaration for java.math.BigDecimal.divideToIntegralValue() method

public BigDecimal divideToIntegralValue(BigDecimal divisor)

Parameters

  • divisor - value by which this BigDecimal is to be divided.

Return Value

This method returns the integer part of this / divisor

Exception

  • ArithmeticException - if divisor == 0

Example

The following example shows the usage of math.BigDecimal.divideToIntegralValue() method

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.math.*;

public class BigDecimalDemo {

public static void main(String[] args) {

        // create 3 BigDecimal objects
        BigDecimal bg1, bg2,bg3;

        bg1 = new BigDecimal("99.8");
        bg2 = new BigDecimal("3");

	// divide bg1 with bg2
	bg3 = bg1.divideToIntegralValue(bg2);

	String str = "Integer part of division result is " +bg3;

	// print bg3 value
	System.out.println( str );
    }
}

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result:

Integer part of division result is 33.0
