If we divide an integer by another integer, the result in C# is always an integer. How can we make the result to be 2 decimal? For example: 77 / 21 = 3.67 Thanks.

Thanks, that's what I found too. But the decimal needs to be formatted to 2 decimal. Otherwise it would show as a long bunch of decimals. Specifically how do we format a long decimal to "999.99" in C#? (We know how to do it in VB) Thanks.

"you *could* always overload the \ operator" Overloads are attached to types, though. You can only overload operators on types that you control! Jim

"how do we format a long decimal to "999.99"" Use the ToString() overload with a format specifier. Something like (off the top of my head): myDecimal.ToString("#.00"); Jim

::Overloads are attached to types, though. You can only overload operators on types that you control! Jim, you're right, but you can control the output. you can return a different type. you can always overload the / for int,int to return a decimal type, and
do the casting in the overloaded operator.

Jim, I didn't say it's going to be easy. Or that it was a good solution. I just said it was "possible". Just create an object that is essentially a decimal, and start creating a crapload of overloaded operators. Now. I'll admit that the original post was done
in bad taste for humor, but still. It "is" possible. I'd be the first to slap someone that wanted to do it like that, but that wasn't the purpose of my initial post here.
