# Newbie: Looking for help rounding numbers

I can’t figure out how to round my answer from this short code that I
wrote. I was trying to use both ‘format’ and ‘round’ with no luck…

Code:
puts “-----------------------------------”

puts "Input a temperature in Fahrenheit: "
STDOUT.flush
ftemp = gets.chomp.to_f

ctemp = ( (ftemp - 32) / 1.8 )
format( “%.2f”, ctemp )

puts “”
puts ftemp.to_s + " F is " + ctemp.to_s + " C."
puts “”

I don’t see what’s wrong with round.

puts ftemp.to_s + " F is " + ctemp.round.to_s + " C."

output:

## puts <<ENDINTRO Fahrenheit to Centigrade Conversion

Input a temperature in Fahrenheit:
ENDINTRO
STDOUT.flush

ftemp = gets.chomp.to_f
ctemp = ( (ftemp - 32) / 1.8 )

puts “”, “#{ftemp} F is #{ctemp.round} C.”
puts “#{ftemp} F is %d C.” % ctemp
puts “#{ftemp} F is %.2f C.” % ctemp

rounded_ctemp = format( “%.2f”, ctemp )
puts “#{ftemp} F is #{rounded_ctemp} C.”

Cleaner style yet. Nice.
Cheeky monkey.

Thank you very much for the help!

STDOUT.flush

ctemp = (ftemp - 32) / 1.8

rounded_ctemp = format( “%.2f”, ctemp )
puts “”,

“#{ftemp} F is #{rounded_ctemp} C.”
