Have you ever faced a situation in your coding journey where precise number rounding was crucial? Maybe you're calculating currency or setting up a game score system, and you need to round down to the nearest whole number. That's where
This simple line of code is the beginning of understanding how
Math.floor function becomes invaluable.
Math.floor will always go to the lower integer.
floor() method takes a floating-point number and chops off the decimal points, leaving you with the largest integer less than or equal to the original number. It's like knocking down the number to its floor value without giving it a chance to climb up to the ceiling.
Math.floor always rounds down, its counterpart
Math.ceil (short for "ceiling") does the opposite—it always rounds up to the nearest integer. Imagine you have a number like 2.3;
Math.floor would give you 2, while
Math.ceil would bump it up to 3.
Flooring a variable is straightforward:
In this example, we've taken a body temperature reading and floored it, which could be useful in a medical application where only whole numbers are considered.
Also, mastering HTML and CSS will further enhance your web projects:
By now, you should have a clear understanding of how
