Stuck for an hour now

Let's make sure we're always working with floats. Convert your arguments to floats before you add them together. You can do this with the float() function.

def add(float(gain),float(mike)):
    return(gain + mike)

here is a correct code def add(gain, mike): gain = float(gain) mike = float(mike) return(gain+mike)

Convert your arguments to floats after they have passed through the function.

def add(a, b): return(float(a) + float(b))
