I have a table created by the following input:

counts = {25, 10, 14, 10, 13, 12, 3, 6, 10, 8, 68};
papers = Plus @@ counts;
pcts = 100. counts/papers;
grades = {"A ","A-","B+","B ","B-","C+","C ","C-","D+","D ","F "}; 
      {grades, counts, NumberForm[#, {4, 1}] & /@ pcts}],
      TableHeadings -> {None, {"Grade", "Number", "Per Cent"}}]

1. How can I get a 0 to display after the decimal point in the last 
column's first and last rows?  (I tried to wrap the entire thing with an 
obvious PaddedForm expression, but that had the unfortunate effect of 
giving me decimals in the 2nd column, which should be integers without 
any decimal point or trailing decimal places whatsoever.)

2. How can I get the numbers in columns 2 and three to be 
right-justified?  (I tried TableAlignments but that didn't seem to do it.)
