I don't have the book so I can't see what the example shows. Can you
post the code? Can you post what you tried? Just copy-n-paste from
the interactive interpreter.
My guess is that you haven't imported the "math" module, or that you
aren't qualifying the names of the functions. Here's an example that
print math.floor( 31.58889 )
print math.ceil( 31.58889 )
