How do I multiply two numbers rounded up to the next whole number...


=(A1*B1)

Cell values: 20.5 x 30.25 = 620.125 ...not like this<not like="" this<not="" this="" (="A1*B1)=" 620.125


but lke this... 20.5 x 30.25 (21 x 31) = 651

651 is the answer I'm looking for.</not>

When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.

Hi,

Use ROUNDUP like this:

<b></b><table cellpadding="2.5px" rules="all" style=";background-color: rgb(255,255,255);border: 1px solid;border-collapse: collapse; border-color: rgb(187,187,187)"><colgroup><col width="25px" style="background-color: rgb(218,231,245)" /><col /><col /><col /></colgroup><thead><tr style=" background-color: rgb(218,231,245);text-align: center;color: rgb(22,17,32)"><th></th><th>A</th><th>B</th><th>C</th></tr></thead><tbody><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">1</td><td style="text-align: right;;">20.5</td><td style="text-align: right;;">30.25</td><td style="text-align: right;;">651</td></tr></tbody></table><p style="width:6.4em;font-weight:bold;margin:0;padding:0.2em 0.6em 0.2em 0.5em;border: 1px solid rgb(187,187,187);border-top:none;text-align: center;background-color: rgb(218,231,245);color: rgb(22,17,32)">Sheet630</p><br /><br /><table width="85%" cellpadding="2.5px" rules="all" style=";border: 2px solid black;border-collapse:collapse;padding: 0.4em;background-color: rgb(255,255,255)" ><tr><td style="padding:6px" ><b>Worksheet Formulas</b><table cellpadding="2.5px" width="100%" rules="all" style="border: 1px solid;text-align:center;background-color: rgb(255,255,255);border-collapse: collapse; border-color: rgb(187,187,187)"><thead><tr style=" background-color: rgb(218,231,245);color: rgb(22,17,32)"><th width="10px">Cell</th><th style="text-align:left;padding-left:5px;">Formula</th></tr></thead><tbody><tr><th width="10px" style=" background-color: rgb(218,231,245);color: rgb(22,17,32)">C1</th><td style="text-align:left">=ROUNDUP(<font color="Blue">A1,0</font>)*ROUNDUP(<font color="Blue">B1,0</font>)</td></tr></tbody></table></td></tr></table><br />

Okay, I knew you guys would make it look easy :) But now if I take that formula and put =(C1/144) in D1 I get 651/144= 4.52 - I want 5 to be the answer (D1 rounded up).

Try:

Edit: BTW, you keep surrounding your Multiplication and Division with Brackets, they're not needed, doesn't hurt, but not needed.
