printf("Array real_numbers can store %ld items.", sizeof(array)/sizeof(real_numbers));... Can anyone help me with this out? What am i doing wrong? Thanks in advance.

Welcome to Treehouse, Osman Safa Kaya ,
float real_numbers; printf("Array real_numbers is %ld bytes.\n", sizeof(real_numbers)); printf("Array real_numbers can store %ld items.\n", sizeof(real_numbers)/sizeof(float));
would be the right answer to Challenge task 3 of 3 "Print the length of the array real_numbers using the sizeof() function. Your output should look like the following: Array real_numbers can store x items." because you have to divide the size of your array variable (real_numbers) by the size of one item (in this case a float) it occupies in memory.
There's a great video here in the forum section on the right "Tips for asking questions" that might help you with posting your questions and code on the forum.

Using the printf function print the size in bytes of the variable real_numbers. Your output should look like the following: Array real_numbers is x bytes.
It is asking you to print the sizeof real_numbers. Be sure to follow what the question says. Look to what it asks your printf output to be.
