Am working on ex. 2.3 from hw2.pdf. I'm trying to use math.ceil(276/19) but it returns 14 not 15. I'm running Python 2.7.2. I thought math.ceil() was supposed to round floats up not down.

Floats yes, you're giving it an integer. If given two integers in division, Python will do integer division. If one or both of the numbers is a float, you'll get what you're expecting.

Thanks for the info. Sometimes it's just sitting in front of your face. I even read the Python docs on it and it still didn't click. Thanks again.
