If you divide 3 by 2, you get 1.5, right? If the result doesn't become a float, 3/2 would become 1 instead and the 0.5 is lost. In other languages like C this is actually the case: If you don't specifically say otherwise and you divide one int by another, the decimals disappear. Python is just designed the other way round: It creates a float whenever you divide, 'to be on the safe side'. If in Python you specifically don't want the decimals, you can use //.
