You could turn them into floats and store that in two other variables like this:

def add(num1, num2):
    float1 = float(num1)
    float2 = float(num2)
    return(float1 + float2)

Or you could do it all inline like this:

def add(num1, num2):

The first way is a bit more clean and easier to read and figure out what’s going on. The second way is more compact. There’s advantages to both.
