When working in Apricot Results, you may want to round a number down or up in order to make your data more succinct. In order to do this, you can use the **floor **or **ceil **functions.

The **floor **function rounds the number down to the nearest whole number. Formulas using this function will be set up as follows:

*=floor([Variable with Number])*

For example, lets say you have a variable **[Age in Years]** that is equal to **1.8**. Since it is years, you would want to round down to **1**. To do this, you would use the formula *=floor([Age in Years])*.

Alternatively, the **ceil **function will round up. Formulas using this function will be set up as follows:

*=ceil([Variable with Number])*

For example, lets say you have a variable** [Average Days in Program]** that is equal to ** 30.15**. You would want to round up to

**31**. To do this, you would use the formula

*=ceil([Average Days in Program])*.

One helpful thing to remember is that in floors are the lowest point in a room, and the **floor **function lowers a number, while ceilings are the highest point in a room, and the **ceil **function raises a number up.
