# Python Math: Round a specified number upwards towards infinity and down towards negative infinity

## Python Math: Exercise-41 with Solution

Write a Python program to round a specified number upwards towards infinity and down towards negative infinity with precision 4.

**Sample Solution**:

**Python Code:**

```
import decimal
context = decimal.getcontext()
value = decimal.Decimal(1) / decimal.Decimal(17)
print("1/17 = ",value)
context.prec = 4
print("Precision: ",4)
context.rounding = getattr(decimal, 'ROUND_CEILING')
value = decimal.Decimal(1) / decimal.Decimal(17)
print("Round upwards towards infinity: ",value)
context.rounding = getattr(decimal, 'ROUND_FLOOR')
value = decimal.Decimal(1) / decimal.Decimal(17)
print("Round down towards negative infinity: ",value)
```

Sample Output:

1/17 = 0.05882352941176470588235294118 Precision: 4 Round upwards towards infinity: 0.05883 Round down towards negative infinity: 0.05882
