Proof question: "Prove that if 𝑛 is an odd integer then ⌈ (2𝑛+1) / 2 ⌉ = 𝑛 + 1"

Am I wrong in thinking that the 2's in the numerator and denominator should cancel each other out, leaving me with ⌈𝑛+1⌉= n + 1, and because n + 1 is an integer, that it's ceiling is simply n + 1? Or am I approaching it the wrong way?
