float setting the number of decimal places

I am trying to find out when using float in a calculation how to set the number of decimal places. For example my code below



#include
int main()
{
float x=123.0;
float y=69.0;
float answer=y*x;
printf("the answer is %f
",answer);
return(0);
}



This returns an answer 8487.0000 I would like it not to show all the decimal places. However if the sum has decimal places I would like to select the number of decimal places shown

Thanks

Rodney
