# DAX Math & Trigonometric - TRUNC function

## Description

Truncates a number to an integer by removing the decimal part of the number.

## Syntax

```TRUNC (<number>)
```

## Parameters

Sr.No. Parameter & Description
1

number

The number you want to truncate.

A whole number.

## Remarks

DAX TRUNC and INT functions result in the same integer for positive numbers.

• TRUNC removes the fractional part of the number.

• INT rounds the number down to the nearest integer.

However, DAX TRUNC and INT functions might result in different integers for negative numbers.

• TRUNC removes the fractional part of the number.

• INT rounds the number down to the nearest integer based on the value of the fractional part of the number.

For example, TRUNC (-6.3) returns -6, but INT (-6.3) returns -7 because -7 is the nearest integer.

## Example

```= TRUNC (5.8) returns 5.
= TRUNC (-5.8) returns -5.
