numpy.floor¶

numpy.
floor
(x, /, out=None, *, where=True, casting='same_kind', order='K', dtype=None, subok=True[, signature, extobj]) = <ufunc 'floor'>¶ Return the floor of the input, elementwise.
The floor of the scalar x is the largest integer i, such that i <= x. It is often denoted as .
Parameters: x : array_like
Input data.
out : ndarray, None, or tuple of ndarray and None, optional
A location into which the result is stored. If provided, it must have a shape that the inputs broadcast to. If not provided or None, a freshlyallocated array is returned. A tuple (possible only as a keyword argument) must have length equal to the number of outputs.
where : array_like, optional
Values of True indicate to calculate the ufunc at that position, values of False indicate to leave the value in the output alone.
**kwargs
For other keywordonly arguments, see the ufunc docs.
Returns: y : ndarray or scalar
The floor of each element in x.
Notes
Some spreadsheet programs calculate the “floortowardszero”, in other words
floor(2.5) == 2
. NumPy instead uses the definition offloor
where floor(2.5) == 3.Examples
>>> a = np.array([1.7, 1.5, 0.2, 0.2, 1.5, 1.7, 2.0]) >>> np.floor(a) array([2., 2., 1., 0., 1., 1., 2.])
