floor

Round toward negative infinity

Syntax

Description

example

Y = floor(X) rounds each element of X to the nearest integer less than or equal to that element.

example

Y = floor(t) rounds each element of the duration array t to the nearest number of seconds less than or equal to that element.

example

Y = floor(t,unit) rounds each element of t to the nearest number of the specified unit of time less than or equal to that element.

Examples

X = [-1.9  -0.2  3.4;  5.6  7.0  2.4+3.6i];
Y = floor(X)
Y =

  -2.0000 + 0.0000i  -1.0000 + 0.0000i   3.0000 + 0.0000i
   5.0000 + 0.0000i   7.0000 + 0.0000i   2.0000 + 3.0000i

Round each value in a duration array to the nearest number of seconds less than or equal to that value.

t = hours(8) + minutes(29:31) + seconds(1.23);
t.Format = 'hh:mm:ss.SS'
t = 

  1×3 duration array

   08:29:01.23   08:30:01.23   08:31:01.23

Y1 = floor(t)
Y1 = 

  1×3 duration array

   08:29:01.00   08:30:01.00   08:31:01.00

Round each value in t to the nearest number of hours less than or equal to that value.

Y2 = floor(t,'hours')
Y2 = 

  1×3 duration array

   08:00:00.00   08:00:00.00   08:00:00.00

Input Arguments

collapse all

Input array, specified as a scalar, vector, matrix, or multidimensional array. For complex X, floor treats the real and imaginary parts independently.

floor converts logical and char elements of X into double values.

Data Types: single | double | int8 | int16 | int32 | int64 | uint8 | uint16 | uint32 | uint64 | char | logical
Complex Number Support: Yes

Input duration, specified as a duration array.

Unit of time, specified as 'seconds', 'minutes', 'hours', 'days', or 'years'. A duration of 1 year is equal to exactly 365.2425 24-hour days.
