You should show your code. You may not in fact be using an array and that might be why it's not working.

This should be it:

Challenge 1 of 3:

float real_numbers [5];

Challenge 2 of 3:

float real_numbers [5]; printf ("Array real_numbers is %ld bytes.\n", sizeof(real_numbers));

Challenge 3 of 3:

float real_numbers [5]; printf ("Array real_numbers is %ld bytes.\n", sizeof(real_numbers)); printf("Array real_numbers can store %ld items.\n", sizeof(real_numbers)/sizeof(float));
