Hi Justin. I think you are getting mixed up with what was in the video. i suggest watching the video again. The p integer.class stuff was just to see what class was assigned. You don't need any of that. The important part is how floats and integers are determined. Its with the decimal point. i = 2 will assign 2 to the variable i and it will be type Integer. f =2.5 will assign 2.5 to the variable f and it will be type Float. So if you want to assign the value of 2 to a Float you would need to assign it a value of 2.0. So all you need is:

float =

integer =

Just add the correct values and it should pass. Keep at it Justin!

Hey Mark, Thanks for your help I got it through! I guess I was just overthinking this one too much.
