tf.floordiv(x, y, name=None)

tf.floordiv(x, y, name=None)

See the guide: Math > Arithmetic Operators

Divides x / y elementwise, rounding toward the most negative integer.

The same as tf.div(x,y) for integers, but uses tf.floor(tf.div(x,y)) for floating point arguments so that the result is always an integer (though possibly an integer represented as floating point). This op is generated by x // y floor division in Python 3 and in Python 2.7 with from __future__ import division.

Note that for efficiency, floordiv uses C semantics for negative numbers (unlike Python and Numpy).

x and y must have the same type, and the result will have the same type as well.


  • x: Tensor numerator of real numeric type.
  • y: Tensor denominator of real numeric type.
  • name: A name for the operation (optional).


x / y rounded down (except possibly towards zero for negative integers).


  • TypeError: If the inputs are complex.
