Math.Ceiling Method (Double)
Returns the smallest integral value that is greater than or equal to the specified doubleprecision floatingpoint number.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
Parameters
 a

Type:
System.Double
A doubleprecision floatingpoint number.
Return Value
Type: System.DoubleThe smallest integral value that is greater than or equal to a. If a is equal to NaN, NegativeInfinity, or PositiveInfinity, that value is returned. Note that this method returns a Double instead of an integral type.
The behavior of this method follows IEEE Standard 754, section 4. This kind of rounding is sometimes called rounding toward positive infinity. In other words, if a is positive, the presence of any fractional component causes a to be rounded to the next highest integer. If a is negative, the rounding operation causes any fractional component of a to be discarded. The operation of this method differs from the Floor(Double) method, which supports rounding toward negative infinity.
The following example illustrates the Math.Ceiling(Double) method and contrasts it with the Floor(Double) method.
double[] values = {7.03, 7.64, 0.12, 0.12, 7.1, 7.6}; Console.WriteLine(" Value Ceiling Floor\n"); foreach (double value in values) Console.WriteLine("{0,7} {1,16} {2,14}", value, Math.Ceiling(value), Math.Floor(value)); // The example displays the following output to the console: // Value Ceiling Floor // // 7.03 8 7 // 7.64 8 7 // 0.12 1 0 // 0.12 0 1 // 7.1 7 8 // 7.6 7 8
