# CEIL

CEIL(f) is ceiling, it returns the integer that is equal to or just more than f

CEIL(f) give the integer that is equal to, or just higher than f. CEIL always rounds up.

CEIL(2.7) -> 3 CEIL(-2.7) -> -2

```
SELECT population/1000000 AS a,
FLOOR(population/1000000) AS b
FROM bbc

SELECT population/1000000 AS a,
CEIL(population/1000000) AS b
