How to convert arguments into floats
Please help me or let me know where to find relevant videos
def add(num1,num2): plus = float(num1+num2) return (plus)

You are close to the correct approach. There is an error in the
return indentation. The
return should align with the statement above it. Also, it's better to individually convert each argument to a float. Otherwise, if the two arguments were strings, it would concatenate the two strings into one before trying the float conversion.
Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!
