Code #1 : Example for number_class() method

 `# Python Program explaining  ` `# number_class() method ` ` `  `# loading decimal library ` `from` `decimal ``import` `*` ` `  ` `  `# Initializing a decimal value ` `a ``=` `Decimal(``-``1``) ` ` `  `b ``=` `Decimal(``'0.142857'``) ` ` `  `# printing Decimal values ` `print` `(``"Decimal value a : "``, a) ` `print` `(``"Decimal value b : "``, b) ` ` `  ` `  `# Using Decimal.number_class() method ` `print` `(``"\n\nDecimal a with number_class() method : "``, a.number_class()) ` ` `  `print` `(``"Decimal b with number_class() method : "``, b.number_class()) `

Output :

```Decimal value a :  -1
Decimal value b :  0.142857

Decimal a with number_class() method :  -Normal
Decimal b with number_class() method :  +Normal

```

Code #2 : Example for number_class() method

 `# Python Program explaining  ` `# number_class() method ` ` `  `# loading decimal library ` `from` `decimal ``import` `*` ` `  ` `  `# Initializing a decimal value ` `a ``=` `Decimal(``'-3.14'``) ` ` `  `b ``=` `Decimal(``'321e + 5'``) ` ` `  `# printing Decimal values ` `print` `(``"Decimal value a : "``, a) ` `print` `(``"Decimal value b : "``, b) ` ` `  ` `  `# Using Decimal.number_class() method ` `print` `(``"\n\nDecimal a with number_class() method : "``, a.number_class()) ` ` `  `print` `(``"Decimal b with number_class() method : "``, b.number_class()) `
