Python Python Basics (2015) Logic in Python Try and Except

Let's make sure we're always working with floats. Convert your arguments to floats before you add them together.

It states that "You can do this with the float() function." My question is how, please?

def add(num1,num2): return(num1 + num2) add(1, 10)

def add(num1, num2):
    return(num1 + num2)
add(2, 10)
#use the method float() and assign the result in the same variable, which in this case are num1 and num2.
def add(num1, num2)
    num1 = float(num1)
    num2 = float(num2)
    return num1 + num2
