INTDAX Function (Math and Trig)

Rounds a number down to the nearest integer.

Syntax

INT ( <Number> )
Parameter Attributes Description
Number

The number you want to round down to an integer.

Return values

Scalar A single integer value.

An integer value

Remarks

INT performs a type conversion to integer and always returns an integer, whereas other rounding functions (such as TRUNC) returns a decimal.

INT rounds <Number> towards −∞ to the nearest integer. If <Number> is already an integer, no rounding occurs. This operation is the same as taking the integer part of <Number>, but only when <Number> is non-negative.

Examples

The following examples clarify the behavior of INT with negative and positive numbers.

```INT ( - 2.9 ) = -3
INT ( - 2.1 ) = -3
INT ( - 0.9 ) = -1
INT ( - 0.1 ) = -1
INT ( 0.1 ) = 0
INT ( 0.9 ) = 0
INT ( 2.1 ) = 2
INT ( 2.9 ) = 2
```
