Create a float variable named 'radius' with the value '14.5'. To create a float variable and assign it a value:

float myFloat = 1.5;

Add a printf statement to print the radius variable. To write a printf statement:

printf("I can print the float here: %f and it will output to the screen", myFloat);

the variable will show up where you put the %f format specifier
