convert each int to double

Program.cs
using System;

class Program
{

    // YOUR CODE HERE: Define a Divide method!

    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        // This should print "2.5".
        Console.WriteLine(Divide(5, 2));
        // This should print "3.3333333333..."
        // (Or a value close to that, since it can't be
        // infinitely precise.)
        Console.WriteLine(Divide(10, 3));
    }

}

Just a simple divide method but the return value needs to be converted to a double:

using System;

class Program
{
    // YOUR CODE HERE: Define a Divide method!
    static double Divide(int first, int second)
    {
        return (double) first / second;
    }

    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        // This should print "2.5".
        Console.WriteLine(Divide(5, 2));
        // This should print "3.3333333333..."
        // (Or a value close to that, since it can't be
        // infinitely precise.)
        Console.WriteLine(Divide(10, 3));
    }
}
