# divided_by

Divides a number by another number.

The result is rounded down to the nearest integer (that is, the floor) if the divisor is an integer.

Input

``````{{ 16 | divided_by: 4 }}
{{ 5 | divided_by: 3 }}
``````

Output

``````4
1
``````

### Controlling rounding

`divided_by` produces a result of the same type as the divisor — that is, if you divide by an integer, the result will be an integer. If you divide by a float (a number with a decimal in it), the result will be a float.

For example, here the divisor is an integer:

Input

``````{{ 20 | divided_by: 7 }}
``````

Output

``````2
``````

Here it is a float:

Input

``````{{ 20 | divided_by: 7.0 }}
``````

Output

``````2.857142857142857
``````

### Changing variable types

You might want to use a variable as a divisor, in which case you can’t simply add `.0` to convert it to a float. In these cases, you can `assign` a version of your variable converted to a float using the `times` filter.

In this example, we’re dividing by a variable that contains an integer, so we get an integer:

Input

``````{% assign my_integer = 7 %}
{{ 20 | divided_by: my_integer }}
``````

Output

``````
2
``````

Here, we multiply the variable by `1.0` to get a float, then divide by the float instead:

Input

``````{% assign my_integer = 7 %}
{% assign my_float = my_integer | times: 1.0 %}
{{ 20 | divided_by: my_float }}
``````

Output

``````
