the integer part is ... (?? distributive ??) 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Define the floor of a real number k where [k] is the least smallest integer from k. I want to show that [a - b] = [a] - 2. Relevant equations n/a 3. The attempt at a solution [1.2 - 5.7] = [-3.8] = -4 [1.2] - [5.7] = 1 - 5 = -4 I am not sure how to go about generalizing the observation above to all numbers.
