Rounding down

The simplest form of rounding is truncation. Any
digits after the desired precision are ignored and dropped. The
CitectVBA `Fix()`

function is an
example of truncation. For example, `Fix(3.5)`

is 3, and `Fix(-3.5)`

is -3.

The `Int()`

function
rounds down to the highest integer less than the value. Both
`Int()`

and `Fix()`

act the same way with positive numbers
(truncating), but give different results for negative numbers:
`Int(-3.5)`

gives -4.

The `Fix()`

function
is an example of symmetric rounding because it affects the
magnitude (absolute value) of positive and negative numbers in the
same way. The `Int()`

function is an
example of asymmetric rounding because it affects the magnitude of
positive and negative numbers differently.
