# Ceiling()

### CEILING()

Rounds up a number to the next integer

Syntax

`      CEILING( <nNumber> ) -> nUpRoundedNumber`

Arguments

<nNumber> number to round up

Returns

<nUpRoundedNumber> the rounded number

Description

The function CEILING() determines the smallest integer that is bigger than <nNumber>.

Examples

```      ? ceiling( 1.1 )  // --> 2.0
? ceiling( -1.1 ) // --> -1.0```

Tests

```      ceiling( 1.1 )  == 2.0
ceiling( -1.1 ) == -1.0```

Compliance

CEILING() is compatible with CT3’s CEILING().

``` FLOOR()
Rounds down to the next integer
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Syntax

FLOOR(<nValue>) --> nSmallerInteger

Argument

<nValue>  Designates the number for which the next-smaller integer
is determined.

Returns

FLOOR() returns the next-smaller integer of the one passed as a
parameter.

Description

FLOOR() always returns the next-smaller integer of the one passed as a
parameter.  This applies to positive and negative numbers.

Example

Show the next-smaller integer for positive and negative numbers:

? FLOOR(1.9)       // Result:  1
? FLOOR(1.1)       // Result:  1
? FLOOR(0.9)       // Result:  0
? FLOOR(-0.1)      // Result: -1
? FLOOR(-0.9)      // Result: -1
? FLOOR(-1.1)      // Result: -2```
