i think i got it!

it was the semi colon

the track i was on was working might not be simplest or prettiest but it does work i think atleast lol

Code:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
int main()
{
float integer_1;//first number
float integer_2;//second number
float integer_3;//3rd number
float integer_4;//4th number
printf("this program displays the largest and smallest number entered by the user");
printf("Please enter the 4 integers you would like to use with a space between them xx xx xx xx");
scanf("%f %f %f %f",&integer_1 ,&integer_2 ,&integer_3 ,&integer_4);//store the value of user input
// into the correct variable location
printf("%.1f %.1f %.1f %.1f\n",integer_1,integer_2,integer_3,integer_4);// print the variable on the screen to confirm they are taken in correctly. Just for testing
if (integer_1>integer_2&&integer_1>integer_3&&integer_1>integer_4)//logical system to answer the question is integer 1 the biggest. If it does not pass to any of the criteria is should move on to next line
printf("Largest%f\n",integer_1);//if it pass print largest value
else
if (integer_1<integer_2&&integer_1<integer_3&&integer_1<integer_4)//test to see if integer 1 is possibly the smallet value
printf("smallest %.1f\n",integer_1);//if it is print it on the screen
printf("%.2f %.2f %.2f %.2f\n\n\n",integer_1,integer_2,integer_3,integer_4);//just for testing
if ((integer_2>integer_1)&&(integer_2>integer_3)&&(integer_2>integer_4))//logical system to find out if integer 2 is the greatest value
printf("Largest%f\n",integer_2);//if it is print it
else
if (integer_2<integer_1&&integer_2<integer_3&&integer_2<integer_4)//logical system to see if integer 2 is smallest, if it is print it. If no criteria is met move on.
{printf("smallest %.1f\n",integer_2);}//this one is the problem i speak of! it keeps printing this off when its FALSE
if ((integer_3>integer_1)&&(integer_3>integer_2)&&(integer_3>integer_4))//logical system to find out if integer 2 is the greatest value
printf("Largest%f\n",integer_3);//if it is print it
else
if (integer_3<integer_1&&integer_3<integer_2&&integer_3<integer_4)//logical system to see if integer 2 is smallest, if it is print it. If no criteria is met move on.
{printf("smallest %.1f\n",integer_3);}//this one is the problem i speak of! it keeps printing this off when its FALSE
if ((integer_4>integer_1)&&(integer_4>integer_2)&&(integer_4>integer_3))//logical system to find out if integer 2 is the greatest value
printf("Largest%f\n",integer_4);//if it is print it
else
if (integer_4<integer_1&&integer_4<integer_2&&integer_4<integer_3)//logical system to see if integer 2 is smallest, if it is print it. If no criteria is met move on.
{printf("smallest %.1f\n",integer_4);}//this one is the problem i speak of! it keeps printing this off when its FALSE
return(0);
}
