Well first lets correctly set up the printf statement. Let's create the variable and set up the printf statement.
float radius = 14.5; printf();
You had forgotten to add the parantheses to printf statement and end with a semicolon now you need to add the text and identifier (which in this case is %f)
float radius = 14.5; printf("A ball with a radius of %f inches");
Now the last and final part of writing a printf statement is adding the variable(s) that the identifier is referring to.
float radius = 14.5; printf("A ball with a radius of %f inches", radius);
That should be it! Hopefully that helped!
