Rounding Up in Acrobat javascript

Is there an equivalent of math.ceil to round up a number in Acrobat javascript?

I am multiplying .0212 by 5200, which produces 110.24

I want the result displayed in the textbox as a rounded-up whole number: 111

How would this be expressed?

Ordinarily these two numbers are variables in javascript code.

On the format tab in Text Field properties, would you set the number for 2 decimal places, so as to have something for the rounding to work on?

Thank you for your help.

You would use the Math.ceil() function for this. Let's assume you have two variables v1 and v2 that you want to multiply, and a variable r (for result or rounded) that will store the rounded up value:

r = Math.ceil(v1 * v2);
