Please advise how to write this printf statement

Got stuck on this task

You put %f in your string where you would like your float to go. This string will be the first parameter of your printf statement. The float variable is passed as the second parameter.

It should look like the following:

float radius = 14.5;
printf("A ball with a radius of %f inches", radius);

Yeah thanks. Just figured it out right before your reply. Thanks though
