# How to use the floor method in Julia

Programming Bytes

### Overview

The floor(x) method will return the nearest integral value of x that is less than or equal to x.

### Syntax

floor(x)


### Argument

x: The value for which the floor value is to be calculated.

### Return value

The nearest integral less than or equal to the specified value will be returned.

### Code

The code below demonstrates how to use the floor method.

## find floor of 3
println( "floor(3) => $(floor(3))") ## find floor of 3.4 println( "floor(3.4) =>$(floor(3.4))")

## find floor of 3.6
println( "floor(3.6) => $(floor(3.6))") ## find floor of 3.99 println( "floor(3.99) =>$(floor(3.99))")


Using the floor method

### Explanation

In the above code, we do the following:

Line 2: We use the floor method with 3 as an argument. The floor(3) will return 3 .

Line 5: We use the floor method with 3.4 as an argument. The floor(3.4)will return 3.0.

Line 8: We use the floor method with 3.6 as an argument. The floor(3.6) will return 3.0.

Line 11: We use the floor method with 3.99 as an argument. The floor(3.99) will return 3.0.
