Why is my code returning 560.88 but it still says it is correct?

using System;

class Program
    static void Multiply(double first, double second)
        double total = first * second;

    // YOUR CODE HERE: Define a method named Multiply. Remember
    // to use the "static" and "void" keywords: "static void
    // Multiply" (without quotes). Multiply should take two
    // "double" values as parameters.

    static void Main(string[] args)
        // YOUR CODE HERE:
        // Call Multiply with two arguments: 2.5 and 2.
        // YOUR CODE HERE:
        // Call Multiply with two arguments: 6 and 7.

"Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!" :laughing:

The challenges often use internal procedures and data to test code more thoroughly than you might expect, and of course they check the accuracy of those results as well. We can guess you are seeing the result of one of those extra tests.
