JavaScript ceil

The JavaScript ceil function is a Math function used to return the smallest integer value, which is greater than or equal to the specified expression or a specific number. The syntax of the JavaScript ceil Function is

Math.ceil(number);
  • If the number argument is a positive or negative number, it will return the ceiling value.
  • If the specified number argument is not a number, it will return NaN.
  • And if it is Null, it returns Zero.

JavaScript ceil Function Example

In this js example, We are going to use this one to find the ceiling values of different data types and display the output

  1. Within the first two statements, We used it directly on both the Positive integer and negative integer.
  2. Following four statements, We used JavaScript ceil Function on both the Positive and negative Decimal values.
  3. Next, we tried on the String value. As we said before, this will return NaN as output
  4. Last, we tried this Math function on Null value, and JavaScript returns Zero as output
