Functions challenge in C

Hi this is my code:

float addTwo(float a, float b);

int main(int argc, char *argv[]) { float fingers = 1.00; float crossed = 2.00;

printf("addTwo %f",addTwo(fingers, crossed));

return 0;


float addTwo(float a, float b) { return a + b;


this is the question

Write a function named "addTwo" that accepts two float numbers as arguments. The function should also return a float which is the sum of the two arguments passed to the function.

1 Answer

Just give them your actual function, i.e. float addTwo(float a, float b) { return a + b; }, no need to include main or the header.
