Hiya Prem! You are doing way too many stuff. Just follow the instructions given in the challenges. For the reference , your solution should look like this:

def add(a, b):
        a = float(a)
        b = float(b)
    except ValueError:
        return None
    return a + b

Hi Prem,

From the instructions it says:

I need you to make a new function, add. add should take two arguments

It looks like you aren't taking in two arguments to your add() function. You want it to look something like this def add(count1, count2) and delete the parts where you are prompting a user for input.
