@stdlib/math-base-special-ceilb 0.0.5 • Public • Published

ceilb

Round a numeric value to the nearest multiple of b^n toward positive infinity.

Installation

npm install @stdlib/math-base-special-ceilb

Usage

var ceilb = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-ceilb' );

ceilb( x, n, b )

Rounds a numeric value to the nearest multiple of b^n toward positive infinity.

// Round a value to 4 decimal places:
var v = ceilb( 3.141592653589793, -4, 10 );
// returns 3.1416

// If n = 0 or b = 1, `ceilb` behaves like `ceil`:
v = ceilb( 3.141592653589793, 0, 2 );
// returns 4.0

// Round a value to the nearest multiple of two toward positive infinity:
v = ceilb( 5.0, 1, 2 );
// returns 6.0

Notes

• Due to rounding error in floating-point numbers, rounding may not be exact. For example,

var x = 0.2 + 0.1;
// returns 0.30000000000000004

// Should round to 0.3...
var v = ceilb( x, -16, 10 );
// returns 0.3000000000000001

Examples

var randu = require( '@stdlib/random-base-randu' );
var round = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-round' );
var pow = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-pow' );
var ceilb = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-ceilb' );

var x;
var n;
var b;
var v;
var i;

for ( i = 0; i < 100; i++ ) {
x = (randu()*100.0) - 50.0;
n = round( (randu()*10.0) - 5.0 );
b = round( randu()*10.0 );
v = ceilb( x, n, b );
console.log( 'x: %d. %d^%d: %d. Rounded: %d.', x, b, n, pow( b, n ), v );
}

Notice

This package is part of stdlib, a standard library for JavaScript and Node.js, with an emphasis on numerical and scientific computing. The library provides a collection of robust, high performance libraries for mathematics, statistics, streams, utilities, and more.
