Just out of curiosity, why not do it in the application layer?
Or maybe, you can try:
SELECT BINARY 1+1.2;
SELECT BINARY 1+1.0;
SELECT CAST(1+1.2 AS UNSIGNED);
SELECT CAST(1+1.6 AS UNSIGNED);
= 3 (so I guess rounding happens here)
And then I guess ultimately, you could also use FLOOR() CEIL() or ROUND()
SELECT ROUND(1+1.6, 0);
