# floorDiv

Round the result of division toward negative infinity

## Syntax

``y = floorDiv(x,d)``
``y = floorDiv(x,d,m)``

## Description

example

````y = floorDiv(x,d)` returns the result of `x/d` rounded to the nearest integer value in the direction of negative infinity.```

example

````y = floorDiv(x,d,m)` returns the result of `x/d` rounded to the nearest multiple of `m` in the direction of negative infinity.The datatype of `y` is calculated such that the wordlength and fraction length are of a sufficient size to contain both the largest and smallest possible solutions given the data type of `x`, and the values of `d` and `m`.```

## Examples

collapse all

Perform a division operation and round to the nearest integer value in the direction of negative infinity.

`floorDiv(int16(201),10)`
```ans = 20 DataTypeMode: Fixed-point: binary point scaling Signedness: Signed WordLength: 14 FractionLength: 0```

Perform a division operation and round to the nearest multiple of `7` in the direction of negative infinity.

`floorDiv(int16(201),10,7)`
```ans = 14 DataTypeMode: Fixed-point: binary point scaling Signedness: Signed WordLength: 14 FractionLength: 0```
