Am I doing the else part right?

I'm struggling to find the bug here...If you know where it is can you please help me out?

def add(num1, num2):
    return(float(num1) + float(num2))
except ValueError:
    return(num1 + num2)

You are really close! Just remember that Python is picky about indentation.

All of the lines except the first aren't indented (spaced) enough.

Add four spaces to the beginning of every line except the first to pass.

I hope this helps :grin:
