# Python | math.ceil() function

• Last Updated : 11 Mar, 2019

In Python, math module contains a number of mathematical operations, which can be performed with ease using the module. `math.ceil()` function returns the smallest integral value greater than the number. If number is already integer, same number is returned.

```Syntax: math.ceil(x)

Parameter:
x: This is a numeric expression.

Returns:  Smallest integer not less than x.```

Code #1:

 `# Python code to demonstrate the working of ceil()``   ` `# importing "math" for mathematical operations ``import` `math ``   ` `x ``=` `33.7``   ` `# returning the ceil of 33.7``print` `(``"The ceil of 33.7 is : "``, end ``=``"") ``print` `(math.ceil(x))`

Output:

```The ceil of 33.7 is : 34
```

Code #2:

 `# Python code to demonstrate the working of ceil()``   ` `# importing "math" for mathematical operations ``import` `math ``   ` `# prints the ceil using ceil() method ``print` `(``"math.ceil(-13.1) : "``, math.ceil(``-``13.1``))``print` `(``"math.ceil(101.96) : "``, math.ceil(``101.96``))`

Output:

```math.ceil(-13.1) :  -13
math.ceil(101.96) :  102
```
