In this quick tutorial, we’ll illustrate how to **round up a given number to the nearest hundred**.

For example:

*99* becomes *100*

*200.2* becomes *300*

*400* becomes *400*

First, we’re going to call *Math.ceil()* on the input parameter. ** Math.ceil() returns the smallest integer that is greater than or equal to the argument.** For example, if the input is 200.2

Next, we add 99 to the result and dividing by 100. We are taking advantage of Integer division **to truncate the decimal portion of the quotient.** Finally, we are multiplying the quotient by 100 to get our desired output.

Here is our implementation:

static long round(double input) { long i = (long) Math.ceil(input); return ((i + 99) / 100) * 100; };

Let’s test the implementation:

@Test public void givenInput_whenRound_thenRoundUpToTheNearestHundred() { assertEquals("Rounded up to hundred", 100, RoundUpToHundred.round(99)); assertEquals("Rounded up to three hundred ", 300, RoundUpToHundred.round(200.2)); assertEquals("Returns same rounded value", 400, RoundUpToHundred.round(400)); }

In this quick article, we’ve shown how to round a number up to the nearest hundred.

As usual, the complete code is available on the GitHub.
