# Decimal.Ceiling() Method in C#

This method is used to round the decimal to the closest integer toward positive infinity.

Syntax: public static decimal Ceiling (decimal d);
Here d is the decimal whose ceiling value is to be calculated.

Return Value: It returns the smallest integral value that is greater than or equal to the d parameter. Note that this method returns a Decimal instead of an integral type.

Below programs illustrate the use of Decimal.Ceiling(Decimal) Method:

Example 1:

 `// C# program to demonstrate the ` `// Decimal.Ceiling(Decimal) Method ` `using` `System; ` `using` `System.Globalization; ` ` `  `class` `GFG { ` ` `  `    ``// Main Method ` `    ``public` `static` `void` `Main() ` `    ``{ ` ` `  `        ``// Declaring the decimal variable ` `        ``Decimal a = 4.01m; ` ` `  `        ``// finding the ceiling of  ` `        ``// the Decimal value ` `        ``// using ceiling() method; ` `        ``Decimal value = Decimal.Ceiling(a); ` ` `  `        ``// Display the ceiling ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(``"Ceiling Value is : {0}"``, ` `                                            ``value); ` `    ``} ` `} `

Output:

```Ceiling Value is : 5
```

Example 2:

 `// C# program to demonstrate the ` `// Decimal.Ceiling(Decimal) Method ` `using` `System; ` `using` `System.Globalization; ` ` `  `class` `GFG { ` ` `  `    ``// Main Method ` `    ``public` `static` `void` `Main() ` `    ``{ ` ` `  `        ``// Declaring the decimal variable ` `        ``Decimal a = -5.03m; ` ` `  `        ``// finding the Ceiling of ` `        ``// the Decimal value ` `        ``// using Ceiling() method; ` `        ``Decimal value = Decimal.Ceiling(a); ` ` `  `        ``// Display the Ceiling ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(``"Ceiling Value is : {0}"``, ` `                                            ``value); ` `    ``} ` `} `

Output:

```Ceiling Value is : -5
```

Example 3:

 `// C# program to demonstrate the ` `// Decimal.Ceiling(Decimal) Method ` `using` `System; ` `using` `System.Globalization; ` ` `  `class` `GFG { ` ` `  `    ``// Main Method ` `    ``public` `static` `void` `Main() ` `    ``{ ` ` `  `        ``// Declaring the decimal variable ` `        ``Decimal a = 2.00m; ` ` `  `        ``// finding the Ceiling of ` `        ``// the Decimal value ` `        ``// using Ceiling() method; ` `        ``Decimal value = Decimal.Ceiling(a); ` ` `  `        ``// Display the Ceiling ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(``"Ceiling Value is : {0}"``, ` `                                            ``value); ` `    ``} ` `} `

Output:

```Ceiling Value is : 2
```
