I’m Trying to divide value but it’s give me output 0.

```
var value = Nat.div(17,100);
// => 0
```

I need output 0.17

how can i get this kind of output?

Division with natural numbers will always result in a whole number (i.e. `0`

, `1`

, `2`

, etc.).

You will have to convert the `Nat`

into a `Float`

first, then divide it by `100`

.

Have you any example Nat To Float and Float To Nat?

Have a look at the documentation. You may have to chain multiple conversions if there is no direct conversion for your input/output type

I tried but not working give me output 0.

```
Nat64.toNat(Int64.toNat64(Float.toInt64(Float.div(Float.fromInt64(Int64.fromNat64(Nat64.fromNat(17))),100))));
```

I need 0.17

You turn it into a float, divide, which gives you 0.17, then you go ahead and turn it back into a Nat. A nat cannot hold non-integer values, therefore it cuts the number down to 0. Stick with the float
