I am stumped. How to: Add two floats?

I am currently taking the functions challenge and I am stumped on adding the floats together, I know it is just a matter of syntax. This is my code. Please in the reply tell me what I need to do. Thank you.

void addtwo() int main() { } return 0; int addtwo

return 0; void addtwo( { float chicken = 24; float steak = 12;

chicken + steak; printf("24 + 12 = .\n");

all you need to do is implement the function. you dont need the main method, and you dont need to define a function prototype or any variables.

below is a shell of what your function implementation should look like:

returnType functionName(dataType parameterOne, dataType parameterTwo) {

    return something;


the challenge tells you what to name the function, the data type of the arguments, and what it should return (it needs to add the parameters passed in to the function and return that sum). since the arguments need to be floats and you are adding them together you know the return type needs to be a float as well
