### Operator \ (Integer divide)

Divides two

`Integer`expressions

**Syntax:**

**Usage:**

*result*=*lhs***\**

*rhs*

**Parameters:**

*lhs*
The left-hand side dividend expression.

*rhs*
The right-hand side divisor expression.

**Return Value:**

Returns the quotient of an

`Integer`dividend and divisor.**Description:**

**divides two**

`Operator \`(Integer division)`Integer`expressions and returns the result. Float numeric values are converted to

`Integer`by rounding up or down, and the fractional part of the resulting quotient is truncated.

If the divisor (

`) is zero (`

*rhs*`0`), a division by zero error (crash) will be raised.

Neither of the operands are modified in any way.

This operator can be overloaded for user-defined types.

**Examples:**

Dim n As Double

Print n \ 5

n = 7 \ 2.6 '' => 7 \ 3 => 2.33333 => 2

Print n

n = 7 \ 2.4 '' => 7 \ 2 => 3.5 => 3

Print n

Sleep

Print n \ 5

n = 7 \ 2.6 '' => 7 \ 3 => 2.33333 => 2

Print n

n = 7 \ 2.4 '' => 7 \ 2 => 3.5 => 3

Print n

Sleep

Output:

0 2 3

**Dialect Differences:**

- In the
*-lang qb*dialect, this operator cannot be overloaded.

**Differences from QB:**
