Bob, Thanks on that. I see the use of the floor function. This whole idea is trivial when one can use that. What I am trying to do is basically do the floor function as a linear equation. This is useful for pulling numbers apart. Like a number 13. How does one algebraically make it 1 and 3 or 10 and 3. Either.
