select (10.5*15.01) from dual


157.605

I tried using ceil and also round

I get the value 158.

I need help in decimals. 605 has to be 61 -- 157.61

select (ceil(100*70*15.01)/100) from dual
   
   select round(70*15.01,2) from dual

1050.7

Is there a ways to have 1050.70?

if you want formatting, convert it to a string

select to_char((ceil(100*70*15.01)/100),'fm9999.00') from dual
   
   select to_char(round(70*15.01,2),'fm9999.00') from dual

... or just do the formatting "later" within your frontend...

But the point is: what exactly are you asking for / what do you want to do ?!

with round() YOU specify the number of decimals points as the second parameter in that function

for "display" you use to_char, THEN there you may also specify the number of decimal points to show for presentation by the "format mask" (which is the second parameter to that function).

I'd suggest you get familiar with these functions
