must have the same sign; that is, they must both be positive or both negative.CEILING
is most often used withfactor
set to a 'round' number such as0.1
or0.01
in order to round to a particular decimal place. However,factor
can, in fact, be any number of the same sign asvalue
, e.g.CEILING(23.25,0.18)
which results in23.4
, which is 0.18 * 130. This can be used, for instance, to round up to a particular denomination of currency (e.g. 0.25 or 0.05 USD).
