# CEILING.PRECISE function

The CEILING.PRECISE function rounds a number up to the nearest integer or multiple of specified significance. If the number is positive or negative, it's rounded up.

## Parts of a CEILING.PRECISE formula

`CEILING.PRECISE(number, [significance])`

 Part Description Notes `number` The value to round up to the nearest integer or multiple of `significance`. `significance` The number to whose multiples `number` will be rounded. The sign of `significance` will be ignored. [OPTIONAL: 1 by default]

## Sample formulas

```CEILING.PRECISE(-10.5, 1) CEILING.PRECISE(96, 10) CEILING.PRECISE(-23.25, 0.1)```

## Notes

• By default, positive numbers with decimal places are rounded up to the nearest integer. For example, 4.3 is rounded up to 5.
• Negative numbers are rounded up (toward zero). For example, -4.3 is rounded up to -4.
