# ceil¶

## Purpose¶

Round up toward $$+∞$$.

## Format¶

y = ceil(x)
Parameters: x (NxK matrix) – Values to be rounded. y (NxK matrix) – Rounded values.

## Examples¶

// Values to be rounded
x = 10*rndn(2, 2);
y = ceil(x);


After the code above, the matrices x and y should hold values similar to below. Answers will vary due to the use of random numbers as the input to the ceil function.

x = 8.73383  -0.783488  y = 9.0000000  0.0000000
13.1106   7.155113      14.000000  8.0000000


## Remarks¶

This rounds every element in the matrix x to an integer. The elements are rounded up toward $$+∞$$.
