iOS Objective-C Basics (Retired) Foundation Framework NSNumber

Getting error on challenge 3/4 and don't see why.

For challenge 3/4, I put in

NSNumber *planck = [[NSNumber alloc] initWithFloat:6.626];

and get an error. In Xcode the statement works correctly. Am I doing something wrong, or is the Treehouse challenge wrong?

It seems that the challenge expects the number to be a double and not float.

NSNumber *planck = [[NSNumber alloc] initWithDouble:6.626];

worked for me.

NSNumber *planck = @6.626;

should work also.

Yup some googling just showed that a lot of people have been confused about that question, I probably should've looked around first. I used initWithDouble and it worked.
