# C# | Math.Ceiling() Method

In C#, Math.Ceiling() is a Math class method. This method is used to find the smallest integer , which is greater than or equal to the passed argument. The Celing method operates both functionalities in decimal and double. This method can be overload by passing different arguments to it.

• Math.Ceiling(Decimal) Method
• Math.Ceiling(Double) Method

#### Math.Ceiling(Decimal) Method

This method is used to returns the smallest integral value which is greater than or equal to the specified decimal number in the argument list.

Syntax:

```public static decimal Ceiling(decimal d)
```

Parameter:

Decimal d: It is the decimal number of type System.Decimal.

Return Type: This function return the smallest integral value which will be greater than or equal to d. The type of this method is System.Decimal and return a decimal instead of an integral type.

Examples:

```Input  : 888.765M;
Output : 889

Input  : -20002.999M
Output : -20002
```

Program : To demonstrate the Math.Ceiling(Decimal) method.

 `// C# program to illustrate the ` `// Math.Ceiling(Decimal) function ` `using` `System; ` ` `  `class` `SudoPlacement { ` ` `  `    ``// Main method ` `    ``static` `void` `Main() ` `    ``{ ` ` `  `        ``// Input decimal value. ` `        ``decimal` `decim_n1 = 2.10M; ` `        ``decimal` `decim_n2 = -99.90M; ` `        ``decimal` `decim_n3 = 33.001M; ` ` `  `        ``// Calculate Ceiling values by ` `        ``// Using Math.Ceiling() function ` `        ``decimal` `ceil_t1 = Math.Ceiling(decim_n1); ` `        ``decimal` `ceil_t2 = Math.Ceiling(decim_n2); ` `        ``decimal` `ceil_t3 = Math.Ceiling(decim_n3); ` ` `  `        ``// Print First values and Ceiling ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(``"Input Value  = "` `+ decim_n1); ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(``"Ceiling value = "` `+ ceil_t1); ` ` `  `        ``// Print Second values and Ceiling ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(``"Input Value  = "` `+ decim_n2); ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(``"Ceiling value = "` `+ ceil_t2); ` ` `  `        ``// Print third values and Ceiling ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(``"Input Value  = "` `+ decim_n3); ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(``"Ceiling value = "` `+ ceil_t3); ` `    ``} ` `} `

Output:

```Input Value  = 2.10
Ceiling value = 3
Input Value  = -99.90
Ceiling value = -99
Input Value  = 33.001
Ceiling value = 34
```

#### Math.Ceiling(Double) Method

This method is used to returns the smallest integral value which is greater than or equal to the specified double-precision floating-point number in the argument list.

Syntax:

```public static double Ceiling(double d)
```

Parameter:

Double d: It is the double number of type System.Double.

Return Type: This method returns the smallest integral value that is greater than or equal to d. If d is equal to NaN, NegativeInfinity, or PositiveInfinity, that value is returned. The type of this method is System.Double.

Examples:

```Input  : 10.1
Output : 11

Input  : -2222.2220
Output : -2222
```

Program : To demonstrate the Math.Ceiling(Double) method.

 `// C# program to illustrate the ` `// Math.Ceiling(Double) function ` `using` `System; ` ` `  `class` `SudoPlacement { ` ` `  `    ``// Main method ` `    ``static` `void` `Main() ` `    ``{ ` ` `  `        ``// Input different Double value. ` `        ``double` `n1 = 101.10; ` `        ``double` `n2 = -1.1; ` `        ``double` `n3 = 9222.1000; ` ` `  `        ``// Calculate Ceiling values by ` `        ``// Using Math.Ceiling() function ` `        ``double` `t1 = Math.Ceiling(n1); ` `        ``double` `t2 = Math.Ceiling(n2); ` `        ``double` `t3 = Math.Ceiling(n3); ` ` `  `        ``// Print First values and Ceiling ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(``"Input Value  = "` `+ n1); ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(``"Ceiling value = "` `+ t1); ` ` `  `        ``// Print Second values and Ceiling ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(``"Input Value  = "` `+ n2); ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(``"Ceiling value = "` `+ t2); ` ` `  `        ``// Print third values and Ceiling ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(``"Input Value  = "` `+ n3); ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(``"Ceiling value = "` `+ t3); ` `    ``} ` `} `

Output:

```Input Value  = 101.1
Ceiling value = 102
Input Value  = -1.1
Ceiling value = -1
Input Value  = 9222.1
Ceiling value = 9223
```
