Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution

Step 1:

In this problem we need to show that

is true  for all real numbers x and y.

 NOTE: The symbols for floor and ceiling are like the square brackets [ ] with the top or bottom part missing.                                               Example :

Given: x  and  y are real numbers.

Let us consider ,  and  where a , b are integers and  are real numbers such that  .

So ,

Now

, since

, since a , b are integers.

Therefore ,
