I need to know how I can remove or strip a decimal point and figure after decimal point in xsl template?

See xsl value below:

<xsl:value-of select="qty/order">

and the output example is

"1.000"

I need to just get "1"

nicer is to treat is as a number
<xsl:value-of select="floor(qty/order)">
the difference is in the negative numbers
if the number would be "-7.9"
first solution will return "-7"
second solution will returen "-8"
