Question: Let's make sure we're always working with floats. Convert your arguments to floats before you add them together. You can do this with the float() function.

trial.py
```def add(x, y):
float(x,
return(x + y)

``` MOD

You can create a float using the `float()` function

```def add(x, y):
f_x, f_y = float(x), float(y)
return f_x + f_y
```

task 1 , and task 2, another way of writing the code below:

```def add(x1,y1):
sum1 = 0;

sum1 = (float(x1) + float(y1))
return sum1
```
