Refuses the entry if the user enters a float and keeps asking the user to enter an integer until the user responds properly and enters an integer.

    int f=1;


    printf("Enter integer: ");





        printf("Try again (Please enter an integer)\n");



    for (b=1;b<=a;b++)

It's because you used a variable with the type of integer:

int a;

Instead you should do

float a;

 or if you want to have even better precision:

double a;

Besides that you need to change the expected type of variable in your input and output functions.

http://www.cplusplus.com/reference/cstdio/printf/ - if you look in the table at the top you can see that you used a symbol for signed integer type - %d. Similarly you should use %f for float and %lf for double.


double a;
