floorf Function

Calculates the floor of a single precision floating-point value.




float floorf(float x);


floating-point value for which to return the floor

Return Value

Returns the largest integer value less than or equal to x.


No domain or range error will occur. See ceilf.


See the notes at the beginning of this chapter or section for information on using printf() or scanf() (and other functions reading and writing the stdin or stdout streams) in the example code.

#include <math.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)
  float x[8] = {2.0F, 1.75F, 1.5F, 1.25F, 
                -2.0F, -1.75F, -1.5F, -1.25F};
  float y;
  int i;

  for (i=0; i<8; i++)
    y = floorf (x[i]);
    printf("The floor for  %f is  %f\n", x[i], y);

Example Output

The floor for  2.000000 is  2.000000
The floor for  1.750000 is  1.000000
The floor for  1.500000 is  1.000000
The floor for  1.250000 is  1.000000
The floor for  -2.000000 is  -2.000000
The floor for  -1.750000 is  -2.000000
The floor for  -1.500000 is  -2.000000
The floor for  -1.250000 is  -2.000000
