## python – Round a floating-point number down to the nearest integer?

Simple

```
print int(x)
```

will work as well.

One of these should work:

```
import math
math.trunc(1.5)
> 1
math.trunc(-1.5)
> -1
math.floor(1.5)
> 1
math.floor(-1.5)
> -2
```

#### python – Round a floating-point number down to the nearest integer?

```
x//1
```

The `//`

operator returns the floor of the division. Since dividing by 1 doesnt change your number, this is equivalent to floor but no import is needed.

Notes:

- This returns a float
- This rounds towards -∞
