The floor function is the function that takes as input a real number x, and gives as output the greatest integer less than or equal to x.So for example, if the answer is 34.6 ,converting it to floor will be 34.
here ,when you do print(100/42),the printing quotient will be 2.381(almost).But when you give print(100//42) it works like floor function.So it converts the quotient 2.381 to floor and the prints the answer 2.
