How do I add the float() function to this?

Not sure where the proper input for the float() function is. I have tried a couple different spots but they all seem to be wrong.

def add(num1, num2): 
    return(float(num1 + num2))

You need to use float() on each number individually like so :

return float(num1) + float(num2)

Hope this helps and happy coding :)
