What is '// ' in python?

Python uses the double slash (//) operator for a variety of reasons:

  • This operator may be used to obtain the division result.

  • The product of two integers can be either an integer or a floating-point value. To obtain the division result containing the floating-point value, both the single slash (/) operator and the double slash (//) operator are utilized in Python versions 3+.

  • The single slash operator delivers the correct output for the floating-point result, whereas the double slash operator cannot return the fractional component of the floating-point result. The double slash (//) operator can also be used to specify the window path value dynamically.
