First, it would be helpful to know what y, m and da are. Secondly, do you mean the Mathematica Floor function? Then it should be written with square brackets with the argument inside, Floor[argument]. So, do you mean?: 2.44254*10^6 + 2200 Floor[1/9] + 7/4 Floor[1966 + 17 Floor[1/12]] 2.44598*10^6 You might, perhaps, go over some of the CORE LANGUAGE sections in Help: Language Overview, Expressions, Syntax, Rules & Patterns, Functional Programming.
