CEIL(f) give the integer that is equal to, or just higher than f. CEIL always rounds up.
CEIL(2.7) -> 2 CEIL(-2.7) -> -3
In this example we calculate the population in millions.
SELECT population/1000000 AS a, FLOOR(population/1000000) AS b FROM bbc
SELECT population/1000000 AS a, CEIL(population/1000000) AS b FROM bbc
