So how many of you got caught with the ceiling_test?
It took me a while to figure out why my answer was 1 less than it should be.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm curious what approach you used to finally resolve. There are two problems with the writeup of part 2. The first is that there is no "ceiling" function. The second is that the test cases supplied explicitly use integer division.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1There is a math.ceil function if you import math (http://docs.python.org/2/library/math.html) so you can use that. I had a hard time getting the order correct in the variable to get it to get the right answer when using my multiadd function.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, as Susan says there is a math.ceil function. I simply divided by 19.0 so it returns a float. It took quite a while for me to spot that I was exactly 1 out. :)
