# Lowest nearest integer of a number by floor()

floor() function returns the highest integer lower than the given number or the nearest integer ( on lower side ) of the number.
``````<?Php
echo floor(2.7).'<br>'; // Output 2
echo floor(2.4).'<br>'; // Output 2
echo floor(2.5).'<br>'; // Output 2
echo floor(-10.8).'<br>'; // Output -11
echo floor(-10.3).'<br>'; // Output -11
echo floor(-10.5).'<br>'; // Output -11
?>``````
We get the just lower nearest integer from the number.

Here is a comparison between ceil(), floor() and round() function. For different input numbers we will get different values by using these functions.

-8.49-9-8-8
-8.61-9-8-9

Note that there is no point is using ceil() or floor() functions on integers directly. ( we will get the same value )
