in reply to Dividing and format

printf / sprintf is the obvious way, and given they are builtin functions, I see no reason not to use them.

Want to give us a slightly fuller description of the problem and reasons for the restriction before this gets branded as homework? ;)

    I don't need to display the result, I first want to store the result, do some calculations with it and than display another result.

      Normally, intermediate calculations are done without rounding, to gain maximum accuracy - you round at the end for display purposes. If for some reason you actually need to round the number for intermediate calculations, then you use sprintf.
