Default How do fractional point costs work?

hello, I was just wondering if anyone can tell me what you do if due to limitations an advantage doesn't cost a whole number? For example, if an advantage costs 1.6 or 4.2 points. Does it change when you can take multiple levels in that advantage?

You round the total point cost up. However, if the cost is (for example) 10.4, then level 1 would cost 11, and level two would cost a total of 20.8, rounded up to 21.

So if there was an ability that costs say 2.2 then lv 1 would cost 2.2 rounded to 3, lv 2 would cost 4.4 rounded to 5, and lv 5 would cost exactly 11 right?
