# Fwd: Re: [libreoffice-users] Integer part of a number

```Hi everybody,
```
When I tried to give an answer to Gilles' basic question I proposed "my" formula based on the reality that I have never experienced negative voting. The very interesting (theoretical) discussion this caused shows that there may be several correct solutions.
```
```
I can imagine that Gilles (and me too) is curious to know what is the best answer to his problem. Even if I did (I admit) some "overthinking" I cannot see that my answer is wrong.
```
So, what is the best way for Gilles to continue?

Good morning Gilles & others,

Provided that I got your problem right,

SumVotes_group1 = 5,78(in Calc e.g. in cellC3)

a >>write following formula in(e.g.)cellD3" =IF(c3<1;0;INT(c3))"

b >>copy the formula to d4..d6

The formula translated into english:

```
"if value in cell c3 is /_less than_/ '1' then d3 shall be '0', else (-- if c3 is '1' or bigger then -- ) use the integer of value in c3)"
```
I hope this is of help.

```Hello,

could anyone tell me which formula I should use for the integer part of a
cell to be shown in another cell, and for the value of this cell to be
changed, since, for example, 5,77 would become equal to 5?

When finding out who won in an election, if one group or party gets a
result of 5,28, they get 5 seats, if the result is 0,77, they get no seat
at all, I would then want the figure 5 and the figure 0 to appear in a
cell.

But I need the real value to be 5 and 0, not only to be shown as such,
since these values (0 and not 0,77) will be used in another operation (to
know which group gets the last remaining seat).

I hope my question is not too unclear, thank you for your answers anyway,

G. Siche
