For the first problem set, I would like to round the remaining balances to the nearest penny. The function round(balance, 2) doesn't seem to do anything....what's the right way to do this?

    to be clearer, if for example the result is $16.00 dollars, for example, I will get the output $16.0 dollars

    That's a print formatting issue. In C style syntax the format string would be "$%4.2f" For a 4 digit, 2 to the right of the decimal float number.
