# fixDiv

Round the result of division toward zero

Since R2021a

## Description

example

y = fixDiv(x,d) returns the result of x/d rounded to the nearest integer value in the direction of zero.

example

y = fixDiv(x,d,m) returns the result of x/d rounded to the nearest multiple of m in the direction of zero.

The datatype of y is calculated such that the wordlength and fraction length are of a sufficient size to contain both the largest and smallest possible solutions given the data type of x, and the values of d and m.

## Examples

collapse all

Perform a division operation and round to the nearest integer value in the direction of zero.

fixDiv(int16(201),10)
ans =
20

DataTypeMode: Fixed-point: binary point scaling
Signedness: Signed
WordLength: 13
FractionLength: 0

Perform a division operation and round to the nearest multiple of 7 in the direction of zero.

fixDiv(int16(201),10,7)
ans =
14

DataTypeMode: Fixed-point: binary point scaling
Signedness: Signed
WordLength: 13
FractionLength: 0

Define a function that uses fixDiv.

function y = fixDiv_example(x,d)
y = fixDiv(x,d);
end

Define inputs and execute the function in MATLAB®.

x = fi(pi);
d = fi(2);
y = fixDiv_example(x,d)
y =
1

DataTypeMode: Fixed-point: binary point scaling
Signedness: Signed
WordLength: 2
FractionLength: 0

To generate code for this function, the denominator d must be defined as a constant.

codegen fixDiv_example -args {x, coder.Constant(d)}
Code generation successful.

Alternatively, you can define the denominator, d, as constant in the body of the code.

function y = fixDiv10(x)
y = fixDiv(x,10);
end
x = fi(5*pi);
y = fixDiv10(x)
y =
1

DataTypeMode: Fixed-point: binary point scaling
Signedness: Signed
WordLength: 2
FractionLength: 0
codegen fixDiv10 -args {x}
Code generation successful.
