Hi,
The usually integer division will round the result to the biggest
integet smaller than the float version division.For example, 10/3 = 3.
I'm wondering if there is any easy way to round it to 4 for this case?
Thanks,

int a,b,c;
c = (int) ((double)(a/b) + 0.4999999);
See also rint(), nearbyint() in <cmath>.

I donot understand what you want to say, 10/3=3.33333, so the integer
you need is 3, is that wrong?

How can I guarantee the conversion between float and int won't
introduce any errors?

how about this method:
if((a%b) != 0)
c = (int)(a/b) + 1; Pe*******@gmail .com <Pe*******@gmai l.comwrote:

Well, you only asked that 10/3 round up to 4.
>See also rint(), nearbyint() in <cmath>.

These give you either the nearest value, or they round down.
If you need more exact behavior use something like rint(),
and refer to the man pages for it.

If you don't want to go with the converstion to float, then look at the
remainder.
int Operator = 10;
int Devisor = 3;
int Result = Operator / Devisor;
if ( Operator % Devisor != 0 )
Result++;
This will round up.
if ( Operator % Devisor >= Devisor / 2 )
Result++;
This will round to the closest in cases where the devisor is devisible by 2.
Neither of these handle negatives correctly. Pe*******@gmail .com wrote:

Your worried about an insignificant, tiny, nonmeasureable error whilst
you are attempting to introduce a significant error by suggesting that
10/3 should be 4? Thats a 20% error! What happens when a 20% error gets
propagated?
What are the requirements for that 3 to become a 4? and why?
have you looked at modulus? 10%3, which will result 1 as an adjustment?
Although i still can't understand why.
Do you realize that you'ld have to multiply that doubles's error as
displayed by 1.0 x 10^14 in order for it to impact a cast to an integer
value? In fact, since an integer has both a max and min limitation with
a relatively puny and microscopic valid range, that floating number has
an amazing, mindboggling count of significant figures.
Here, observe what happens to an integer when it reaches its max
allowed value:
#include <iostream>
#include <limits>
int main()
{
int min = std::numeric_li mits<int>::min( );
int max = std::numeric_li mits<int>::max( );
std::cout << "range of an integer on this platform:";
std::cout << "\nmin: " << min;
std::cout << "\nmax: " << max;
std::cout << "\nrollover = " << ++max; // rollover
std::cout << std::endl;
return 0;
}
/* your mileage will vary... i'm running a 64 bit platform
range of an integer on this platform:
min: 2147483648
max: 2147483647
rollover = 2147483648 !!!
*/
Now observe the unadulterated double:
/*
range of a double on this platform:
min: 2.22507e308
max: 1.79769e+308
*/
thats around 4e616 !!! care to compare a roundoff error of 1.0e14 to
that range?
floating numbers are not whole numbers and they do typically roundof
the last digit by 0.5 or so. But lets take that into context here. Pe*******@gmail .com wrote:

That's true for positive integers. If one of them is negative though,
the direction of rounding will normally be the opposite (i.e. integer
division normally rounds towards zero).
I'm wondering if there is any easy way to round it to 4 for this case?
Increase the dividend by 'divisor  1' before performing the division:
(10 + 3  1) / 3 = 4

Hi all,
As I understand it, the rounding direction of signed integer division
in C is unspecified in C89/C94, and specified to be 'towardszero' in
C99.
I need division 'towards infinity' (with a 'mod' operation to match),
i.e. for x and y I need to obtain D and M such that
