implementing a float function

i am stuck on a challenge

1 Answer

This is what you're looking for:

float addTwo (float x, float y) {
    return x + y;

The first part creates a float type function named addTwo. The next part in the parentheses contains the two variables that will be fed into that function. In this case, we need two different float values, so we create two different variables for them. I called them float x and float y, but really, you can name them anything you want. Then the next part will return the summed up value of the two float variables x and y.

For example, if your function implementation looked like this, addTwo (2, 3), it would return a value sum of 5.
