def add(one, two):

float(one + two)

Hi Tanaka, Make sure to read the instructions carefully as they can give you important information for placement of your scripts. The instructions are as followed: Convert your arguments to floats before you add them together. You can do this with the float() function.

Therefore if we take your code and reassemble it following the instructions we can get:

def add(one, two):
    one = float(one)
    two = float(two)
    return (one+two)
