# Divide (3D Analyst)

## Summary

Divides the values of two rasters on a cell-by-cell basis.

## Usage

• The order of inputs is relevant for this tool.

• When a number is divided by zero, the output result is NoData.

• The data types of the inputs to determine the data type of the output:

• If both inputs are integers, an integer division is performed, and the output result is an integer. For example, if 3 is divided by 2, the output is 1.
• If either input is floating-point, a floating-point division is performed, and the output result is a floating-point value. For example, if 3 is divided by 2.0, the output is 1.5.

• If both inputs are single band rasters, or one of the inputs is a constant, the output will be a single band raster.

• If both inputs are multiband rasters, or one of the inputs is a constant, the output will be a multiband raster. The number of bands in each multiband input must be the same.

• The tool will perform the operation on each band from one input against the corresponding band from the other input. If one of the inputs is a multiband raster and the other input is a constant, the tool will perform the operation against the constant value for each band in the multiband input.

## Syntax

`arcpy.3d.Divide(in_raster_or_constant1, in_raster_or_constant2, out_raster)`
 Parameter Explanation Data Type in_raster_or_constant1 The input whose values will be divided by the second input.A number can be used as an input for this parameter, provided a raster is specified for the other parameter. To specify a number for both inputs, the cell size and extent must first be set in the environment. Raster Layer; Constant in_raster_or_constant2 The input whose values the first input are to be divided by.A number can be used as an input for this parameter, provided a raster is specified for the other parameter. To specify a number for both inputs, the cell size and extent must first be set in the environment. Raster Layer; Constant out_raster The output raster.The cell values are the quotient of the first input raster (dividend) divided by the second input (divisor). Raster Dataset

## Code sample

Divide example 1 (Python window)

This example divides the values of the first input raster by the second.

``````import arcpy
from arcpy import env
env.workspace = "C:/data"
arcpy.Divide_3d("degs", "negs", "C:/output/outdivide2")``````
Divide example 2 (stand-alone script)

This example divides the values of the first input raster by the second.
