In this article we will discuss how to use Ceiling.Math function in Excel 2013.

This is a new function introduced in Excel 2013. This function is used to round a number up to the nearest integer or to the nearest multiple of significance. The syntax of this function is as follows: =Ceiling.math(number,[significance]) where significance is optional. The significance indicates the multiple of the number to which we want to round off the number. For example if we will take =Ceiling.math(56.3,3) then it will round the number 56.3 up to the nearest integer that is a multiple of 3 (57) so it will return 57.
