Completely stuck on the C# basics question. It keeps saying that I got the answer but not the way that it expected.

Program.cs
using System;

class Program
{

    static double Multiply(double firstParam, double secondParam)
    {
        return firstParam + secondParam;
    }

    static void Main(string[] args)
    {

        Console.WriteLine(Multiply(2.5,2) + Multiply(6,7));
    }

}

Thanks. Looks like it's still giving me an error for my answer. Not sure what's incorrect.

static double Multiply(double firstParam, double secondParam)
    {
        return firstParam + secondParam;
    }

Your function is named Multiply, but your code currently adds the parameters. Try changing + to *.

You want to return firstParam * secondParam, not firstParam + secondParam, as stated above.
