# Python: Round each float in a list of numbers up to the next integer and return the running total of the integer squares

## Python Programming Puzzles: Exercise-80 with Solution

Write a Python program to round each float in a given list of numbers up to the next integer and return the running total of the integer squares.

Input: [2.6, 3.5, 6.7, 2.3, 5.6] Output: [9, 25, 74, 83, 119] Input: [301.1, 401.4, -23.1, 13554122.0, 10201.0101, 10000000.0] Output: [91204, 252808, 253337, 183714223444221, 183714327525025, 283714327525025]

**Sample Solution:**

**Python Code:**

```
# License: https://bit.ly/3oLErEI
# Import the 'ceil' function from the 'math' module
from math import ceil
# Define a function named 'test' that takes a list of numbers as input
def test(nums):
# Initialize an empty list to store the running total of integer squares
running_squares = []
# Initialize a variable 'tot' to store the running total
tot = 0
# Iterate over each value 'v' in the input list 'nums'
for v in nums:
# Add the square of the ceiling of 'v' to the running total
tot += ceil(v) ** 2
# Append the current running total to the 'running_squares' list
running_squares.append(tot)
# Return the list of running totals
return running_squares
# Example 1
nums1 = [2.6, 3.5, 6.7, 2.3, 5.6]
print("List of numbers:", nums1)
print("Round each float of the said list up to the next integer and return the running total of the integer squares:")
print(test(nums1))
# Example 2
nums2 = [301.1, 401.4, -23.1, 13554122.0, 10201.0101, 10000000.0]
print("\nList of numbers:", nums2)
print("Round each float of the said list up to the next integer and return the running total of the integer squares:")
print(test(nums2))
```

Sample Output:

List of numbers: [2.6, 3.5, 6.7, 2.3, 5.6] Round each float of the said list up to the next integer and return the running total of the integer squares: [9, 25, 74, 83, 119] List of numbers: [301.1, 401.4, -23.1, 13554122.0, 10201.0101, 10000000.0] Round each float of the said list up to the next integer and return the running total of the integer squares: [91204, 252808, 253337, 183714223444221, 183714327525025, 283714327525025]
