### The floor() function:

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

Syntax:
import math
math.floor(x)

Parameter:
x-numeric expression.

Returns:
largest integer not greater than x.

Below is the Python implementation of floor() method:

## Python

 # Python program to demonstrate the use of floor() method  # This will import math moduleimport math     # prints the ceil using floor() methodprint "math.floor(-23.11) : ", math.floor(-23.11)print "math.floor(300.16) : ", math.floor(300.16)print "math.floor(300.72) : ", math.floor(300.72)

Output:

math.floor(-23.11) :  -24.0
math.floor(300.16) :  300.0
math.floor(300.72) :  300.0

### The ceil() Function:

The method ceil(x) in Python returns a ceiling value of x i.e., the smallest integer greater than or equal to x.

Syntax:
import math
math.ceil(x)

Parameter:
x:This is a numeric expression.

Returns:
Smallest integer not less than x.

Below is the Python implementation of ceil() method:

## Python

 # Python program to demonstrate the use of ceil() method  # This will import math moduleimport math     # prints the ceil using ceil() methodprint "math.ceil(-23.11) : ", math.ceil(-23.11)print "math.ceil(300.16) : ", math.ceil(300.16)print "math.ceil(300.72) : ", math.ceil(300.72)

Output:

math.ceil(-23.11) :  -23.0
math.ceil(300.16) :  301.0
math.ceil(300.72) :  301.0
