Those decimal points are not aligned on my display.
You can probably guess why: I'm using a proportional font, and spaces are
not as wide as digits.
So, in addition to the algorithmic tips you've gotten, you need to be sure
you're printing in a monospaced font such as Courier.
If you print in a proportional font, you need to use other means to align
the decimal points instead of padding with spaces.
