trouble with functions returning the wrong result
I'm supposed to create a function which takes 2 args. adds them together and returns a result, after converting the args to floats...something isnt working when i try to convert to floats
def add(a, b): float(a) return a+b
def add(a, b): # creates a float from a but assigns it to nothing float(a) # the initial values of a and b added together, not turned to float return a+b
What you need to do is
return float(a) + float(b), or
a_new = float(a) b_new = float(b) return a_new + b_new
