## C++ floor()

C++ floor() returns floor value of given decimal number.

Floor value is the largest integer value less than the given number.

### Syntax

The syntax of C++ floor() is

`floor(x)`

where

Returns

The return value depends on the type of value passed for parameter x.

The return value of floor(x) is

• double if x is double.
• float if x is float.
• long double if x is long double.

The synopsis of floor() function is

```double floor(double x);
float floor(float x);
long double floor(long double x);
double floor(T x); // For integral type```

floor() is a function of cmath library. Include cmath library in the program, if using floor() function.

### Example

In this example, we read a double value from user into x, and find its floor value using floor() function.

C++ Program

```#include <iostream>
#include<cmath>
using namespace std;

int main() {
double x;
cout << "Enter a number : ";
cin >> x;

double result = floor(x);
cout << "floor(" << x << ") : " << result << endl;
}```

Output

```Enter a number : 3.14
floor(3.14) : 3
Program ended with exit code: 0```
```Enter a number : 3.89
floor(3.89) : 3
Program ended with exit code: 0```
```Enter a number : 3
floor(3) : 3
Program ended with exit code: 0```

### Conclusion

In this C++ Tutorial, we learned the syntax of C++ floor(), and how to use this function to find the floor value of given number, with the help of examples.
