Is Chrome the problem?

I have this Question: Create a float variable named 'radius' with the value '14.5'. (Do not write the main function).

I entered the following:

{

float radius = 14.5;

}

What is the error? I cant proceed. thanks

Hi Steven,

The value you provided the float is a decimal value, to define a float value it needs the letter f at the end of the value.

float radius = 14.5f;

No worries, the course assumes you have a basic understanding of C which is why it's not mentioned.
