JQuery to round up numbers

How do I round up a number in JQuery?

If I have a var = 1.56 and I want to round that up to 2.
var base = 1.56;

//  I wanted to write back into a form with the input name damage and write its value as 2? 

document.getElementById('damage').value = base;

Hi ,

Just some addition to the Leakim971's answer.

If you want  to convert decimal value to the nearest integer then use :

document.getElementById('damage').value = Math.round(base);

If you want to convert decimal value always to the upper integer the use:

document.getElementById('damage').value = Math.ceil(base);
