# Java.math.BigDecimal.divideToIntegralValue() Method

## 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
```
