# "/" and "//" operator in python

### What are division operators in Python?

In Python programming, you can perform division in two ways. The first one is **Float Division("/")** and the second is **Integer Division("//")** or Floor Division.

**Float Division("/"):**Divides left hand operand by right hand operand.

Division works in Python the way it's mathematically defined.

**Floor Division("//"):**The division of operands where the result is the quotient in which the digits after the decimal point are removed. But if one of the

**operands is negative,**the result is floored , i.e., rounded away from zero (towards negative infinity).

Floor division works in Python the way it's **mathematically defined.**
