Integer question
Posted:
Aug 5, 2012 5:42 AM


Hi,
I'm having trouble understanding "the least integer greater than or equal to z" in the following question:
96. For all Z, [z] denotes the least integer greater than or equal to z. Is [x] = 0?
s1) 1 < x < 0.1 s2) [x + 0.5] = 1
What does "the least integer greater than or equal to z" mean? Can someone explain it to me in English? I read this over on http://diaet.me last night and read it again today and I still can't comprehend the meaning to that statement.
Your help is greatly appreciated
