# Floor - script and chart function

Floor() rounds down a number to the nearest multiple of the step shifted by the offset number.

Compare with the ceil function, which rounds input numbers up.

Syntax:

Floor(x[, step[, offset]])

Return data type: numeric

Arguments:

Argument Description
x Input number.
step Interval increment. The default value is 1.
offset

Defines the base of the step interval. The default value is 0.

Examples and results:

Examples Results

Floor(2.4)

Returns 2

In this example, the size of the step is 1 and the base of the step interval is 0.

The intervals are ...0 <= x <1, 1 <= x < 2, 2<= x <3, 3<= x <4....

Floor(4.2)

Returns 4

Floor(3.88 ,0.1)

Returns 3.8

In this example, the size of the interval is 0.1 and the base of the interval is 0.

The intervals are ... 3.7 <= x < 3.8, 3.8 <= x < 3.9, 3.9 <= x < 4.0...

Floor(3.88 ,5)

Returns 0

Floor(1.1 ,1)

Returns 1

Floor(1.1 ,1,0.5)

Returns 0.5

In this example, the size of the step is 1 and the offset is 0.5. It means that the base of the step interval is 0.5 and not 0.

The intervals are ...0.5 <= x <1.5, 1.5 <= x < 2.5, 2.5<= x <3.5,...
