Java Program to divide one BigDecimal from another BigDecimal

Use the divide method to divide one BigDecimal to another in Java. The method returns a BigDecimal whose value is (this / divisor), and whose preferred scale is (this.scale() - divisor.scale()).If the exact quotient cannot be represented (because it has a non-terminating decimal expansion) an ArithmeticException is thrown.

The following is an example −

Example

Live Demo

import java.math.BigDecimal;
public class Demo {
public static void main(String[] argv) throws Exception {
BigDecimal val1 = new BigDecimal("37578975587");
BigDecimal val2 = new BigDecimal("62567875598");
System.out.println("Value 1 : "+val1);
System.out.println("Value 2 : "+val2);
// division
val2 = val2.divide(val1,BigDecimal.ROUND_UP);
System.out.println("Result (Division) = "+val2);
}
}

Output

Value 1 : 37578975587
Value 2 : 62567875598
Result (Division) = 2

Let us see another example −

Example

Live Demo

import java.math.*;
public class Demo {
public static void main(String[] args) {
BigDecimal bg1, bg2, bg3;
bg1 = new BigDecimal("99");
bg2 = new BigDecimal("11");
bg3 = bg1.divide(bg2);
String str = "Division = " +bg3;
System.out.println( str );
}
}

Output

Division = 9
