C# C# Basics Methods Return Values

How do I add the two together? Am I supposed to create an Add value?

The code compiles and runs but I'm never getting the 47. I'm only getting the multiplication

Program.cs
using System;

class Program
{

    static double Multiply(double first, double second)
    {
        return first * second;
        return first + second;
    }

    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        Multiply(2.5, 2);
        Multiply(6, 7);
    }

}

You can only return once from a function. That 2nd line won't ever be seen (but it's not needed).

The instructions say "Then, in your Main method, take the return values from the two calls to Multiply, add those together..."

So the rest of the work needs to be done in Main.
