    you can just write sum = 0.0; and it will be ok
    All problems in computer science can be solved by another level of indirection,
    except for the problem of too many layers of indirection.

    We were required to use float. You guys are the greatest. I changed just a few things to get it to look like what I have actually learned but nonetheless, thank you so much. Now I get to move on to step 4 which should be interesting. Choosing every third integer to sum.
