## Description

The floor() method returns the floor of x i.e. the largest integer not greater than x.

## Syntax

Following is the syntax for floor() method −

```import math

math.floor( x )
```

Note − This function is not accessible directly, so we need to import the math module and then we need to call this function using the math static object.

## Parameters

x − This is a numeric expression.

## Return Value

This method returns the largest integer not greater than x.

## Example

The following example shows the usage of the floor() method.

```#!/usr/bin/python3
import math   # This will import math module

print ("math.floor(-45.17) : ", math.floor(-45.17))
print ("math.floor(100.12) : ", math.floor(100.12))
print ("math.floor(100.72) : ", math.floor(100.72))
print ("math.floor(math.pi) : ", math.floor(math.pi))
```

## Output

When we run the above program, it produces the following result −

```math.floor(-45.17) :  -46
math.floor(100.12) :  100
math.floor(100.72) :  100
math.floor(math.pi) :  3
