divzeroerror(
NUMERATOR
,
DENOMINATOR
)

The divzeroerror( function divides two numbers, returns an error if the denominator is zero.

Parameters

This function has two parameters:

numerator – is the number you want to divide.

denominator – is the number you want to divide by.

Description

The divzero( function divides two numbers. However, unlike the / or ÷ operator, the divzero function does not return infinity if you attempt to divide by zero, instead, it returns an error.

``````divzero(15,3) ☞ 5
divzero(15,4) ☞ 3.75
divzero(15,0) ☞ Error: Cannot divide by zero.
``````

• - -- subtracts the numeric value on the right from the numeric value on the left.
• * -- multiplies the numeric value on the left by the numeric value on the right.
• / -- divides one numeric value by another.
• \ -- performs integer division.
• ^ -- raises a number to a power.
• + -- works differently depending on the type of operands used with it. If both operands are numeric, it does numerical addition. If either operand is text the + operator concatenates (joins together) the two operands.
• abs( -- calculates the absolute value of a number.
• ceil( -- converts a number to an integer, truncating toward positive infinity.
• divzero( -- divides two numbers, returns zero if denominator is zero.
• fix( -- converts a number to an integer, truncating toward zero.
• fixed -- converts a floating point number to fixed point.
• float( -- converts a fixed point number to a floating point number.
• infinity( -- returns infinity.
• int( -- converts a number to an integer, truncating toward negative infinity.
• mod -- computes the remainder (modulo) after integer division.
• nan( -- checks to see if a numeric value is invalid.
• randominteger( -- generates a random integer between the starting and ending values.
• rnd( -- generates a random number between 0 and 1.
• round( -- rounds a number to a specified increment.
• validnumber( -- checks to see if a numeric value is valid.
