DivideByZeroException Class in C#

C# exceptions are represented by classes. The exception classes in C# are mainly directly or indirectly derived from the System.Exception class. Some of the exception classes derived from the System.Exception class are the System.ApplicationException and System.SystemException classes.

System.DivideByZeroException is a class that handles errors generated from dividing a dividend with zero.

using System;
namespace ErrorHandlingApplication {
   class DivNumbers {
      int result;
      DivNumbers() {
         result = 0;
      public void division(int num1, int num2) {
         try {
            result = num1 / num2;
         } catch (DivideByZeroException e) {
            Console.WriteLine("Exception caught: {0}", e);
         } finally {
            Console.WriteLine("Result: {0}", result);
      static void Main(string[] args) {
         DivNumbers d = new DivNumbers();
         d.division(25, 0);


Exception caught: System.DivideByZeroException: Attempted to divide by zero.
