## Feature #10131

It happens too often to me that I want to calculate the greatest multiple of numeric r not greater than numeric x. This can be done by a simple operation below: ~~~ruby x, r = 3.7, 0.5 x.div(r).*(r) #=> 3.5 x, r = 41, 6 x.div(r).*(r) #=> 36 ~~~ but I encounter this operation so often that I think it is an essential operation, and should be done as a single operation. Can any of the existing zero-ary operation be extended to take an optional argument to do this calculation? For example ~~~ruby 3.7.floor(0.5) #=> 3.5 41.floor(6) #=> 36 ~~~
