Hi Armen Gharibi !

Challenge Task 2 of 3 asks you to use the printf function to print the size in bytes of the variable real_numbers. Your output should look like the following: Array real_numbers is x bytes.

float real_numbers [5];
printf("Array real_numbers is %ld bytes.\n", sizeof(real_numbers));

The result of sizeof(real_numbers) is an NSInteger, hence the %ld String Format Specifier
