consider an example: here we have, 21//4=5 what the floor operator has done is that it simply divided number 21 with 4 and displayed the quotient 5 without carrying out further division of the left out remainder 1 (i.e. when you will carry out division of 21 by 5 you will at last reach to remainder 1 without introducing decimal into the quotient)

Floor division is looking at how many times one number will go into another as a whole, without any decimals. So if there was the expression 20//3, the answer would be 6. This is because 3 goes into 20 six (6) even times (3+3+3+3+3+3 = 18). There is a two left over, but since it is a part of three, not whole, it is not part of the answer.
