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

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

See the guide: Math > Arithmetic Operators

Returns x / y element-wise for integer types.

Truncation designates that negative numbers will round fractional quantities toward zero. I.e. -7 / 5 = 1. This matches C semantics but it is different than Python semantics. See FloorDiv for a division function that matches Python Semantics.

NOTE: TruncateDiv supports broadcasting. More about broadcasting here


  • x: A Tensor. Must be one of the following types: half, float32, float64, uint8, int8, uint16, int16, int32, int64, complex64, complex128.
  • y: A Tensor. Must have the same type as x.
  • name: A name for the operation (optional).


A Tensor. Has the same type as x.
