    What have you done so far to solve your problem?
    Can you describe what the ceiling and floor values are for 5.4?
    The description should help you work out the logic for computing the values.
    Given 5.4 what is the ceiling and how do you get it?
    Given 5.4 what is the floor and how do you get it?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Honestly I don't know what to do first, what I know to get the ceiling of 5.7 is using a math class(math.ceil)
    I wanna know now is how to get it without using math classes. I'm going crazy now. Please help me.

    I don't know what to do first
    You missed answering my questions in post#2. Can you look at that post and answer those questions? Those questions are not how to write code questions. They are asking for some words and math expressions showing how to compute the values.

    Otherwise if you don't know what a ceiling or a floor is, you need to do some research to find out what those two terms mean before you can think about designing and writing a program to compute their values given a number.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
