Simple C Program

I'm trying to write a program to print a conversion table from 0 to 100 celsius (in intervals of 5) to fahrenheit in this format. I have the following but can't get the intervals to increase by 5.

#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)
{
float C=0,F;
int i;
printf("Celsius | Fahrenheit\n");
printf("========|===========\n");
for (i=0; i<=100; i=i+5)
{
F=9*C/5+32;
printf("%5.0f   |%7.0f    \n",C,F);
C=5;
}
return 0;
}

You've got i to increase by 5, do you want to do anything with i?
What do you want to increase by 5?

the variable C will always be assigned to 5 (in the for loop, u put C=5).

You can try this:

int main (void)
{
float C,F;

printf ("Cel   Fara\n");

for (C=0.0; C < 100.0; C+=5.0)
{
F = 9.0*C/5.0 + 32.0;
printf ("%5.0f | %7.0f \n",C,F);
}
return 0;
}
note that you are allowed to use float as the for loop directive.

I need celsius to increase by 5, so I get a table like:

Celsius | Fahrenheit
======|=========
0       |     32
5       |     ..
10      |     ..
100     |    212

Perfect! Thanks :) My confusion was with using i instead of C.
