# numpy.floor_divide¶

`numpy.``floor_divide`(x1, x2, /, out=None, *, where=True, casting='same_kind', order='K', dtype=None, subok=True[, signature, extobj]) = <ufunc 'floor_divide'>

Return the largest integer smaller or equal to the division of the inputs. It is equivalent to the Python `//` operator and pairs with the Python `%` (`remainder`), function so that `b = a % b + b * (a // b)` up to roundoff.

Parameters: x1 : array_like Numerator. x2 : array_like Denominator. out : ndarray, None, or tuple of ndarray and None, optional A location into which the result is stored. If provided, it must have a shape that the inputs broadcast to. If not provided or None, a freshly-allocated array is returned. A tuple (possible only as a keyword argument) must have length equal to the number of outputs. where : array_like, optional Values of True indicate to calculate the ufunc at that position, values of False indicate to leave the value in the output alone. **kwargs For other keyword-only arguments, see the ufunc docs. y : ndarray y = floor(x1/x2) This is a scalar if both x1 and x2 are scalars.

`remainder`
Remainder complementary to floor_divide.
`divmod`
Simultaneous floor division and remainder.
`divide`
Standard division.
`floor`
Round a number to the nearest integer toward minus infinity.
`ceil`
Round a number to the nearest integer toward infinity.

Examples

```>>> np.floor_divide(7,3)
2
>>> np.floor_divide([1., 2., 3., 4.], 2.5)
array([ 0.,  0.,  1.,  1.])
```
