# Math.floor()

The `Math.floor()` function returns the largest integer less than or equal to a given number.

## Syntax

JavaScript
`Math.floor(<var>x</var>)`

`x`
A number.

### Return value

A number representing the largest integer less than or equal to the specified number.

## Description

Because `floor()` is a static method of `Math`, you always use it as `Math.floor()`, rather than as a method of a `Math` object you created (`Math` is not a constructor).

## Examples

### Using `Math.floor()`

JavaScript
```Math.floor( 45.95); //  45
Math.floor( 45.05); //  45
Math.floor(  4   ); //   4
Math.floor(-45.05); // -46
Math.floor(-45.95); // -46```

JavaScript
```// Closure
(function() {
/**
* Decimal adjustment of a number.
*
* @param {String}  type  The type of adjustment.
* @param {Number}  value The number.
* @param {Integer} exp   The exponent (the 10 logarithm of the adjustment base).
* @returns {Number} The adjusted value.
*/
// If the exp is undefined or zero...
if (typeof exp === 'undefined' || +exp === 0) {
return Math[type](value);
}
value = +value;
exp = +exp;
// If the value is not a number or the exp is not an integer...
if (isNaN(value) || !(typeof exp === 'number' && exp % 1 === 0)) {
return NaN;
}
// Shift
value = value.toString().split('e');
value = Math[type](+(value[0] + 'e' + (value[1] ? (+value[1] - exp) : -exp)));
// Shift back
value = value.toString().split('e');
return +(value[0] + 'e' + (value[1] ? (+value[1] + exp) : exp));
}

// Decimal round
if (!Math.round10) {
Math.round10 = function(value, exp) {
};
}
// Decimal floor
if (!Math.floor10) {
Math.floor10 = function(value, exp) {
};
}
// Decimal ceil
if (!Math.ceil10) {
Math.ceil10 = function(value, exp) {
};
}
})();

// Round
Math.round10(55.55, -1);   // 55.6
Math.round10(55.549, -1);  // 55.5
Math.round10(55, 1);       // 60
Math.round10(54.9, 1);     // 50
Math.round10(-55.55, -1);  // -55.5
Math.round10(-55.551, -1); // -55.6
Math.round10(-55, 1);      // -50
Math.round10(-55.1, 1);    // -60
// Floor
Math.floor10(55.59, -1);   // 55.5
Math.floor10(59, 1);       // 50
Math.floor10(-55.51, -1);  // -55.6
Math.floor10(-51, 1);      // -60
// Ceil
Math.ceil10(55.51, -1);    // 55.6
Math.ceil10(51, 1);        // 60
Math.ceil10(-55.59, -1);   // -55.5
Math.ceil10(-59, 1);       // -50```
