int addtwo(a, b){ return a +b ; }

What am i doing wrong?

int addtwo (a, b){

return float a + b;

First, if you're going to return a float you have to specify the function as type float. Next, specify the type of your parameters.

float addTwo(float a, float b){
   return a + b;

Hi Adam!

You have to use a float instead of an integer as the return value (float addTwo), the function has to be named "addTwo" (you wrote addtwo), the type of the arguments is missing (float a, float b) and you don't need the float in the return statement.

float addTwo(float a, float b) {
  return a + b;

Thank you both

Spoke to soon. Im still receiving an error.....grhhh

Ok. found out (addT<----wo) function name is case sensitive!
