# How to subtract one decimal value from another in C#

Theodore Kelechukwu Onyejiaku

### Overview

We use the decimal.Subtract() method to subtract one decimal value from another.

### Syntax

public static decimal Subtract (decimal d1, decimal d2);


### Parameters

• d1: This is the minuend.
• d2: This is the subtrahend. We subtract this from d1.

### Return value

This method returns the subtraction result of two decimal values.

### Example

// use System
using System;

// create class
class DecimalSubtracter
{
// main method
static void Main()
{
// initialise decimal values
decimal d1 = 234.3m;
decimal d2 = 3.5678m;
decimal d3 = 34.45m;
decimal d4 = 67.245m;

// subtract decimal values
decimal r1 = Decimal.Subtract(d1,d2);
decimal r2 = Decimal.Subtract(d3,d4);

// print results
Console.WriteLine(r1);
Console.WriteLine(r2);
}
}

### Explanation

• Line 11–14: We create some decimal values, d1, d2, d3, and d4.

• Line 17: We subtract d2 from d1 using decimal.Subtract() and store the result in r1.

• Line 18: We subtract d4 from d3 using the decimal.Subtract() method and store the result in r2.
