# Calculate the Floor and Ceiling values in R Programming – floor() and ceiling() Function

`floor()` function in R Language returns the largest integer that is smaller than or equal to value passed to it as argument(i.e : rounds downs to the nearest integer).

Syntax: floor(x)

Parameter:
x: Value to be rounded off

Example 1:

 `# R program to calculate floor value  ` `   `  `# Using floor() method  ` `answer1 <``-` `floor(``1.2``)  ` `answer2 <``-` `floor(``1.5``)  ` `answer3 <``-` `floor(``2.6``)  ` `answer4 <``-` `floor(``-``2.6``)  ` `   `  `print``(answer1)  ` `print``(answer2)  ` `print``(answer3)  ` `print``(answer4)  `

Output:

```1

Syntax: ceiling(x)

Parameter:
x: Value to be rounded off

Example 1:

 `# R program to calculate ceiling value  ` `   `  `# Using ceiling() method  ` `answer1 <``-` `ceiling(``1.2``)  ` `answer2 <``-` `ceiling(``1.5``)  ` `answer3 <``-` `ceiling(``2.6``)  ` `answer4 <``-` `ceiling(``-``2.6``)  ` `   `  `print``(answer1)  ` `print``(answer2)  ` `print``(answer3)  ` `print``(answer4)  `
