# divided_by

Divides a number by the specified 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 }}`

Output

`4`

Input

`{{ 5 | divided_by: 3 }}`

Output

`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

`2.857142857142857`
