      // create 3 BigInteger objects
      BigInteger bi1, bi2, bi3;

      bi1 = new BigInteger("-100");
      bi2 = new BigInteger("3");
   
      // divide bi1 with bi2
      bi3 = bi1.divide(bi2); 

      String str = "Division result is " +bi3;
   
      // print bi3 value
      System.out.println( str );
   }
}

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