The difference is this: Regular division , /, will perform it's division task down to the T. Floor division, //, will tell you how many times one number fits into another, without any decimal points or remainders. Example: 24/13 = 1.867........ 24//13 = 1

There is very basix difference Normal division gives floating point number and floor division gives whole number. see below example 24/12 = 2.0 not 2 # Floating Point Number 24 // 12 = 2 not 2.0 # Whole Number / - is normal division it will give floating value // - is floor division it will give integer value

In Python by default take float data type So any division calculations it will give us floating value Suppose that 24/12 = 2.0 not 2 But 24 // 12 = 2 not 2.0 Try to understand difference / - is division it will give floating value // - is floor division it will give integer value

so floor division basically extracts the integer part from the quotient?

why is (98//9.8) gives 9 but 98/98 gives 10.0 whereas 51//5.1 and 51/5.1 gives 10.0
