How to divide large numbers in Visual Basic

I am trying to do some basic math were I take a rather larger number, free bytes, say 12345678 and divide it by a larger number say 23456789 and put it into a variable then multiple it by 100 to get a percent. I tried using double to hold all the values but on the divide, 12345678/ 23456789 I am getting a 1.#QNAN in the Locals variable window for my Double variable.

Can someone show be in Visual Basic how to divide these two numbers and mulitple by 100?

There's no reason you couldn't put 23456789 in a double. Are you sure you aren't putting them into ints first or something? Can you post your code?

Thanks TommyS. After reading your post I did revisit my code and it was an error on my part. Trying to use UInt32 when I just needed Doubles. Further up in a Structure I was using. But again thanks for replying.
