You simply got the math wrong, it should be multipled-then-divided, not the other way around:

ceil($input * 10) / 10

But that only rounds up. Rounding in each direction works with round...

round($input * 10) / 10

But wait, round has a second param, just for this! :)

round($input, 1) // round with precision of 1 digits after the decimal point
