    close but you put the % then the precision then the spcifier f for the float.

    Code:
    printf("%.2f",number);

    You may teach a person from now until doom's day, but that person will only know what he learns himself.

    Now I know what doesn't work.

    A problem is understood by solving it, not by pondering it.
