It is unlikely that you want to do what you indicated. You showed the decimal portion as an integer. You would have to add some convention to distinguish between numbers like 4.12345 and 4.012345 The easiest convention is to keep the decimal point. x = 4.12345; IntegerPart[x] FractionalPart[x] 4 0.12345 Also see on-line help for Round, Floor, and Ceiling.
