Calculate Integer

To calculate the decimal part of the a number, first we must calculate only the integer part. We can calculate the integer portion of a number using the TRUNC Function.



You might also be familiar with the INT Function. The INT Function returns the integer portion of the number, which for positive numbers it the same as the TRUNC Function. However, for negative numbers, the INT Function rounds negative numbers down away from zero.


For this purpose, you probably want to use the TRUNC Function.
