This is my code

#include <stdio.h>  
float fahrenheit;
void temperature_convertor(float Fahrenheit)
{
	float C = Fahrenheit - 32;
    float Ce = C * 5;
    float Celsius =  Ce/9;
    float Kelvin =  Celsius + 273.15f;
    printf("Fahrenheit     Celsius     Kelvin \n---------------------------------------------\n%0.0f          %0.2f           %0.2f\n", Fahrenheit, Celsius, Kelvin);
}


linked to this other one

#include <stdio.h>  // printf

void temperature_convertor(float Fahrenheit);

int main(void)
{
	// test case 1
	temperature_convertor(0);
	printf("\n");

	// test case 2
	temperature_convertor(20);
	printf("\n");

	// test case 3
	temperature_convertor(300);
	printf("\n");

	// test case 4
	temperature_convertor(-20);
	printf("\n");

	// test case 5
	temperature_convertor(137);
	printf("\n");

	// test case 6
	temperature_convertor(-300);
	printf("\n");

	return 0;
}


I'm trying to get the numbers and letters to align in the output, ie I want all celsius values to form a neat line before the word "celsius", the problem is that all the numerical results are slightly different and I end up with a janky line. Any help?

What I have tried:

I tried leaving more spacing, but other than that I'm kinda lost.

You didn't specify enough room for the numbers (see, for instance: printf - C++ Reference[^]).

Replace
Quote:
printf("Fahrenheit Celsius Kelvin \n---------------------------------------------\n%0.0f %0.2f %0.2f\n", Fahrenheit, Celsius, Kelvin);
with
printf("Fahrenheit     Celsius     Kelvin \n---------------------------------------------\n      %4.0f     %7.2f    %7.2f\n", Fahrenheit, Celsius, Kelvin);

What about reading the printf formatting documentation ?

As OG already suggested in your previous question.
