C# Math.BitIncrement() – Examples

In this tutorial, we will learn about the C# Math.BitIncrement() method, and learn how to use this method to find the next largest value for a given double, with the help of examples.


Math.BitIncrement(x) returns the next largest value that compares greater than x.


The syntax of BitIncrement(Double) method is

Math.BitIncrement(Double x)


xThe double value to increment.

Return Value

The method returns a Double value.

Example 1 – BitIncrement(Double)

In this example, we will use Math.BitIncrement() method and find the next largest value for some double-point precision floating numbers.

C# Program

using System;
class Example {
    static void Main(string[] args) {
        Double x, result;

        x = 12.56;
        result = Math.BitIncrement(x);
        Console.WriteLine($"BitIncrement({x}) = {result}");

        x = 10;
        result = Math.BitIncrement(x);
        Console.WriteLine($"BitIncrement({x}) = {result}");


BitIncrement(12.56) = 12.560000000000002
BitIncrement(10) = 10.000000000000002


In this C# Tutorial, we have learnt the syntax of C# Math.BitIncrement() method, and also learnt how to use this method with the help of C# example programs.
