divided_by

Filter = divided_by

Divides a number by another number. The result is rounded down to the nearest integer (that is, the floor) if the divisor is an integer.

Controlling Rounding

divided_by produces a result of the same type as the divisor — that is, if you divide by an integer, the result will be an integer. If you divide by a float (a number with a decimal in it), the result will be a float. For example, here the divisor is an integer:

INPUT

OUTPUT

{{ 20 | divided_by: 7 }}

2

Here it is a float:

INPUT 

OUTPUT

{{ 20 | divided_by: 7.0 }}

Changing Variable Types

You might want to use a variable as a divisor, in which case you can’t simply add .0 to convert it to a float. In these cases, you can assign a version of your variable converted to a float using the times filter. In this example, we’re dividing by a variable that contains an integer, so we get an integer:

INPUT

OUPUT

{% assign my_integer = 7 %} {{ 20 | divided_by: my_integer }}

2

Here, we multiply the variable by 1.0 to get afloat, then divide by the float instead:

INPUT

OUTPUT

{% assign my_integer = 7 %} {% assign my_float = my_integer | times: 1.0 %} {{ 20 | divided_by: my_float }}
