#### Summary

Represents a floating-point decimal data type with at least 28 significant digits, suitable for financial and commercial calculations.

#### Description

The Decimal type can represent values with at least 28 significant digits. The Decimal data type is ideally suited to financial calculations that require a large number of significant digits and no round-off errors.

The Decimal type shall represent values in at least the range -79228162514264337593543950335 to 79228162514264337593543950335, and having scale f such that 0 <= f <= at least 28.

A Decimal value occupies 128 bits; however, its representation is unspecified (see note below).

The result of an operation on values of type Decimal is that which would result from calculating an exact result (preserving scale, as defined for each operator) and then rounding to fit the representation. That is, results are exact to at least 28 digits, but not necessarily to more than 28 decimal places. A zero result has a sign of 0.

Results are rounded to the nearest representable value, and, when a result is equally close to two representable values, to the value that has an even number in the least significant digit position (banker's rounding).

The default initial value of an instance of type Decimal is zero with a scale of zero.

[Note: Unlike the Single and Double data types, decimal fractional numbers such as 0.1 can be represented exactly in the Decimal representation. In the Single and Double representations, such numbers are often infinite fractions, making those representations prone to round-off errors.

Further, the Decimal representation preserves scale, so that 1.23 + 1.27 will give the answer 2.50, not 2.5.

]

If a Decimal arithmetic operation produces a value that is too small for the Decimal format after rounding, the result of the operation is zero. If a Decimal arithmetic operation produces a result that is too large for the Decimal format, a OverflowException is thrown.

[Note: The Decimal class implements implicit conversions from the SByte, Byte, Int16, UInt16, Int32, UInt32, Int64, and UInt64 types to Decimal. These implicit conversions never lose information and never throw exceptions. The Decimal class also implements explicit conversions from Decimal to Byte, SByte, Int16, UInt16, Int32, UInt32, Int64, and UInt64. These explicit conversions round the Decimal value towards zero to the nearest integer, and then convert that integer to the destination type. A OverflowException is thrown if the result is not within the range of the destination type.

The Decimal class provides narrowing conversions to and from the Single and Double types. A conversion from Decimal to Single or Double can lose precision. If the value being converted is not within the range of the destination type, a OverflowException is thrown. A conversion from Single or Double to Decimal throws a OverflowException if the value is not within the range of the Decimal type.

]

[Note: Although different implementations of Decimal can have different representations, interchange of a decimal value within the range of the internal format can still be achieved by converting it to a string, exporting it, and then converting it back to internal format.

]

[Note: In Version 1 of this standard, the representation of Decimal was well-defined, as follows.

When considered as an array of four Int32s, it contains the following four elements:

Index 0 (bits 0-31) contains the low-order 32 bits of the decimal's coefficient.

Index 1 (bits 32-63) contains the middle 32 bits of the decimal's coefficient.

Index 2 (bits 64-95) contains the high-order 32 bits of the decimal's coefficient.

Index 3 (bits 96-127) contains the sign bit and scale, as follows:

Bit PositionsName
0-15(None.)
16-23 Scale
24-30 (None.)
31 Sign
In order to allow alternate representations (such as in the update to the IEC floating-point standard, IEC-60559, currently in preparation), the representation has been made unspecified.

### Decimal.Parse(System.String) Method

 `public static valuetype System.Decimal Parse(string s);`

#### Summary

Returns the specified String converted to a Decimal value.

#### Parameters

s
A String containing the value to convert. The string is interpreted using the System.Globalization.NumberStyles.Number style, preserving scale.

#### Return Value

The Decimal value obtained from s.

#### Exceptions

Exception TypeCondition
ArgumentNullExceptions is a null reference.
FormatExceptions is not in the correct format.
OverflowExceptions represents a number greater than System.Decimal.MaxValue or less than System.Decimal.MinValue.

The string s is parsed using the formatting information in a NumberFormatInfo initialized for the current system culture. [Note: For more information, see System.Globalization.NumberFormatInfo.CurrentInfo .]

If necessary, the value of s is rounded using banker's rounding. Any scale apparent in the string s is preserved unless the value is rounded. If the value is zero, the sign will be 0. Hence the string "2.900" will be parsed to form the decimal with sign 0, coefficient 2900, and scale 3.

#### Example

The following example demonstrates the System.Decimal.Parse(System.String) method.

```using System;
using System.Globalization;
class DecimalParseClass {
public static void Main() {
string s1 = " -1.001  ";
string s2 = "+1,000,111.99";
string s3 = "2.900";
Console.WriteLine("String: {0} (decimal) {1}",s1,Decimal.Parse(s1));
Console.WriteLine("String: {0} (decimal) {1}",s2,Decimal.Parse(s2));
Console.WriteLine("String: {0} (decimal) {1}",s3,Decimal.Parse(s3));
}
}
```
The output is

`String: -1.001 (decimal) -1.001`

``` String: +1,000,111.99 (decimal) 1000111.99```

``` String: 2.900 (decimal) 2.900```

This version of System.Decimal.Parse(System.String) is equivalent to System.Decimal.Parse(System.String) (s, style , `null` ).

The string s is parsed using the formatting information in a NumberFormatInfo initialized for the current system culture. [Note: For more information, see System.Globalization.NumberFormatInfo.CurrentInfo .]

If necessary, the value of s is rounded using banker's rounding.

#### Example

The following example demonstrates supplying NumberStyles values to the System.Decimal.Parse(System.String) method to allow for a symbol separating groups of digits, and a decimal separator. This example uses the symbols from the U.S. English culture, namely a comma and a decimal point.

```using System;
using System.Globalization;
class DecimalParseClass {
public static void Main() {
string s = "1,000,111.99";
NumberStyles ns = NumberStyles.AllowThousands | NumberStyles.AllowDecimalPoint;

### Decimal.Round Method

 `public static decimal Round(decimal d, int decimals);`

#### Summary

Rounds a Decimal value to a specified number of decimal places.

#### Parameters

d
The Decimal to round.
decimals
The number of decimal places to round to. 0 <= decimals <= 28.

#### Return Value

The Decimal result of rounding d to decimals decimal places.

#### Exceptions

Exception TypeCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeExceptiondecimals is not between 0 and 28, inclusive.

#### Description

When d is exactly half way between two rounded values, the result is the rounded value that has an even digit in the rightmost decimal position. For example, when rounded to two decimals, the value 2.345 becomes 2.34 and the value 2.355 becomes 2.36. [Note: This process is known as rounding half towards even, or banker's rounding.]

The scale of the result will be the smaller of decimals and the scale of d.

[Note: The scale of d is never increased, so System.Decimal.Round(System.Decimal,System.Int32) cannot cause overflow.]

#### Example

The following example demonstrates the System.Decimal.Round(System.Decimal,System.Int32) method.

```using System;
class MyClass {
public static void Main() {
decimal d1 = 2.5m;
decimal d2 = 3.5m;
decimal d3 = 2.98765432m;
decimal d4 = 2.18765432m;
Console.WriteLine("Rounding to 0 places...");
Console.WriteLine("round {0} = {1}",d1, Decimal.Round(d1,0));
Console.WriteLine("round {0} = {1}",d2, Decimal.Round(d2,0));
Console.WriteLine("round {0} = {1}",d3, Decimal.Round(d3,0));
Console.WriteLine("round {0} = {1}",d4, Decimal.Round(d4,0));

Console.WriteLine("round {0} = {1}",d3, Decimal.Round(d3,2));
Console.WriteLine("round {0} = {1}",d4, Decimal.Round(d4,2));
}
}
```
The output is

`Rounding to 0 places...`

``` round 2.5 = 2```

``` round 3.5 = 4```

``` round 2.98765432 = 3```

``` round 2.18765432 = 2```

``` Rounding to 2 places...```

``` round 2.5 = 2.5```

``` round 3.5 = 3.5```

### Decimal.ToString(System.String) Method

 `public string ToString(string format);`

#### Summary

Returns a String representation of the value of the current instance.

#### Parameters

format
A String that specifies the format of the returned string. [Note: For a list of valid values, see System.Decimal.ToString (String, IFormatProvider ).]

#### Return Value

A String representation of the current instance formatted as specified by format. The string takes into account the current system culture.

#### Exceptions

Exception TypeCondition
FormatExceptionformat is invalid.

#### Description

This version of System.Decimal.ToString is equivalent to System.Decimal.ToString (format , `null` ).

If format is a null reference, the general format specifier "G" is used.

#### Example

The following example shows the effects of various formats on the string returned by System.Decimal.ToString.

```using System;
class test {
public static void Main() {
decimal d = 1234.56789m;
Console.WriteLine(d);
string[] fmts = {"C","E","F","G","N","P"};
for (int i=0;i<fmts.Length;i++)
Console.WriteLine("{0}: {1}",
fmts[i],d.ToString(fmts[i]));
}
}
```
The output is

`1234.56789`

``` C: \$1,234.57```

``` E: 1.234568E+003```

``` F: 1234.57```
