Is there a way to linearize the ceiling function so that it can be used as a constraint in an LP? I want to include costs per every 50 units (x) as that is the capacity of the transportation vehicle. If the cost per transportation vehicle is 100, then the cost would be 100(<ceiling function="">x/50) so that in effect the number is rounded up so that both 51 units and 100 units will be charged 200 for the use of two transportation vehicles.
