# FIX Function

#### Purpose:

To truncate *x* to a whole number.

#### Syntax:

**FIX**(*x*)

#### Comments:

FIX does not round off numbers, it simply eliminates the decimal point and all characters to the right of the decimal point.

FIX(*x*) is equivalent to SGN(*x*)*INT(ABS(*x*)). The major difference between FIX and INT is that FIX does not return the next lower number for negative *x*.

FIX is useful in modulus arithmetic.

#### Examples:

PRINT FIX(58.75)
58

PRINT FIX(-58.75)
-58
