# How to Find Round Up Value Using ceil Function in Python

Python `ceil()` function exists in standard math library of Python. By using this function, we can get the ceiling value of any number. Ceiling means to round the number up to the nearest integer.
Example: What is the ceiling of 3.4 in the following: In the above number line, the ceiling (round up) value of 3.4 is 4.
In Python, we can attain ceiling value of 3.4 by applying `math.ceil()` function.

Note: This function cannot be accessed directly. We need to import math library first, then we call this function as a static function of Python math library.

## Python `ceil()` Function Syntax

The syntax of `ceil()` function in Python is:

`math.ceil(n)`

## Python `ceil()` Function Parameter

Parameter n is any number.
In this function, the parameter n is required.

Python 2.x – Yes
Python 3.x – Yes

## Python `ceil()` Function Return Value

The function will return ceiling value (round up to the nearest integer) of numeric expression n. The return value is not less than n, instead, it is equal to or greater than n.
