Hi! I have a number:
N = 5.00001:5.99999; % N greater than 5 and less than 6
I want to round the number N up so that I get 6.
So, giving some examples:
N = 4.3;
N_out = 5;
N = 5.8;
N_out = 6;
N = 7.1;
N_out = 8;
N = 9.5;
N_out = 10;
N = 1.2;
N_out = 2;
I tried 'round' but it rounds either down or up if N is < or > than 5 (in this case).
N = 5.3; % or N = 5.9;
N_out = round(N,0); % results: N_out = 5; or N_out = 6;

Although ROUND is the wrong function, scroll to the bottom of its help page and you will find the "See Also" list of functions, which includes CEIL, FIX, and FLOOR. The more you use the documentation, the easier it is to find things :)

Hi Alberto
The 'ceil' function rounds up.
N=4.3;
N_out = ceil(N)
N_out = 5
