### Question:

`int total = (int) Math.ceil(157/32);`

Why does it still return 4?

`157/32 = 4.90625`

, I need to round up, I’ve looked around and this seems to be the right method.I tried

`total`

as`double`

type, but get 4.0.What am I doing wrong?

### Answer:

You are doing

`157/32`

which is dividing two integers with each other, which always result in a rounded down integer. Therefore the`(int) Math.ceil(...)`

isn’t doing anything. There are three possible solutions to achieve what you want. Irecommendusing eitheroption 1oroption 2. Please doNOTuseoption 0.
