Variable_Assignment part 2 Float Variable

I am supposed to make a printf statement for the float variable radius. I wrote: printf ("%f radius.\n", 'radius'); Please help! I don't know what I did wrong.

I think its because you have ' ' around radius. Shouldn't it be:

printf ("%f radius.\n", radius);

I tried that also, it didn't work. The challenge told me that I was wrong

Okay so I checked the challenge. It says Here is what your output should look like: " A ball with a radius of 14.5 inches."

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

I literally copied and pasted your response but it was still incorrect.

Sorry I edited my answer, didn't realize I had an @ symbol. Habit.
