# CEILING

The CEILING function rounds a number up to the nearest integer multiple of specified significance.

### Sample Usage

`CEILING(23.25,0.1)`

`CEILING(A2,1)`

### Syntax

`CEILING(value, [factor])`

• `value` - The value to round up to the nearest integer multiple of `factor`.

• `factor` - [OPTIONAL: `1` by default] - The number to whose multiples `value` will be rounded.

• `factor` may not be equal to `0`.

### Notes

• When `value` is positive, `factor` must also be positive.

• When `value` is negative, `factor` can be either negative or positive to determine which direction to round.

• `CEILING` is most often used with `factor` set to a "round" number, such as `0.1` or `0.01,` in order to round to a particular decimal place.

`FLOOR`: The FLOOR function rounds a number down to the nearest integer multiple of specified significance.

`TRUNC`: Truncates a number to a certain number of significant digits by omitting less significant digits.

`ROUNDUP`: Rounds a number to a certain number of decimal places, always rounding up to the next valid increment.

`ROUNDDOWN`: The ROUNDDOWN function rounds a number to a certain number of decimal places, always rounding down to the next valid increment.

`ROUND`: The ROUND function rounds a number to a certain number of decimal places according to standard rules.

`MROUND`: Rounds one number to the nearest integer multiple of another.

`INT`: Rounds a number down to the nearest integer that is less than or equal to it.
