Usage Of Div Function In Power Automate

Introduction

In Power Automate, at times we need to perform division arithmetic operations so that we can easily get the desired results. As an example, let us see how to calculate the price of candy for quick reference from a bundle cost with the use of the div function.

Step 1

Login to the required Power Apps environment using URL make.powerapps.com by providing username and password and click on Flows on the left-hand side as shown in the below figure.

Step 2

After step 1, Click on New Flow and select instant cloud flow and provide the trigger as Manually trigger a flow and click on Create as shown in the below figure.

Step 3

After step 2, add a parallel branch and in one part name flow as Division Function and take initialize variableaction and provide step name it as Total Candies and then provide the inputs as in one side.

Name: Candies

Type: Integer

Value: 12

as shown in the below figure.

Step 4

After step 3, on another side of the parallel branch take initialize variableaction and provide step name it as Total Cost of Candies  and then provide the inputs as in one side

Name: Total Cost

Type: Float

Value: 1200

as shown in the below figure.

Step 5

After step 4, now take compose action and name it as Price of Each Candy and provide the following inputs as below with div function and it expects the following syntax,

div(dividend: number, divisor: number)

and provide,

div(variables('Total Cost'),variables('Candies'))

and click on update/ok as shown in the below figure.

Note

  1. Make sure to save and run the flow whenever you try expressions.
  2. MS documentation is found here

Conclusion

In this way, we can easily perform arithmetic operations like Division in Power Automate flow.
