Say you have a float variable that''s holding a value of 8.6487 and you would like to print that value rounded to the second decimal place(I.e. 8.65), how would you do that? Thanks..

Hmm. I can''t remember if this method rounds or not ...
  
float myFloat = 8.6487f;
printf("%.2f", myFloat);

I''ve always like the flexible rounder, one that let''s you pick the precision.

  
#include <math.h>

float round(float num,int place)
{
int power=pow(10,place);
return ((float)((int)(power*num))/(float)power);
}
