float, printf("A ball %f inches around.\n"); says my %f is wrong for a float?

I can't pass this chaellenge because it says I am not using a %f for a float.

I believe the problem is that you are not passing the radius variable into printf. Try this:

float radius = 14.5;

printf("A ball with a radius of %f inches.\n", radius);
