C code help needed
I need for the last number to be 0
Code:
#include<stdio.h>
double round (double);
int main(void) {
double orig;
printf("\nEnter a floating point number to be rounded: ");
scanf("%lf",&orig);
printf("\n%.6lf rounded on the fourth decimal place is"
"\n%.5lf\n", orig,round (orig));
return(0);
}
double round (double num) {
int remainder,modder;
double newnum,rounder, roundednum, numberdec;
/*rounding calculations*/
numberdec = (num  (int)num);
rounder = (int)numberdec * 1000;
modder = (int)rounder % 10;
/*rounding up and adding to the number if above .5*/
if (modder >= 5){
rounder++;
rounder = rounder / 1000;
newnum = rounder + (num  numberdec);
return(newnum);
}
}
for example if you enter 1.1111111111(ten 1's after decimal) the output should be ..
1.111111 rounded on the fourth decimal place is
1.11110.
but i get 1.11111. What am I doing wrong??

Set the precision with the appropriate number of decimal places.
Example:
Code:
#include<stdio.h>
//precison here is the number of decimal places
//default is 4
double round (double num, int precision){
int i,remainder,modder,roundby=1;
double newnum,rounder, roundednum, numberdec;
if (precision < 0  precision > 9)
roundby = 1000;
else{
for (i=0; i<precision; i++)
roundby *= 10;
}
/*rounding calculations*/
numberdec = (num  (int)num);
rounder = (int)(numberdec * roundby);
modder = (int)rounder % 10;
/*rounding up and adding to the number if above .5*/
if (modder >= 5){
rounder++;
}
rounder = rounder / roundby;
newnum = ((int)num) + rounder;
return(newnum);
}
int main(void) {
double orig, rounded;
int i;
orig = 1.23456789;
for (i=1; i<11; i++){/* 1 and 10 shows the default */
rounded = round(orig, i);
printf("%.9lf rounded on the %2d decimal place is"
" %.9lf\n", orig, i, rounded);
}
return(0);
}

I need to do it without setting precision .....the default is 4 ....that is standard. There should be a easier way without all that , just by using mod or something.
