precision and rounding and maybe other settings for float type needs to be adjusted

is enum what I should use?

I checked c++ in a nutshell by oreilly, but I can't seem to find any thing from it about enum.

how do I do this?

I don't figure out how enumerations can help you in this issue.

are you saying that it's cout that chop off the parts, not the float type itself?

float value remains untouched. It is just a presentation matter.
