Solution

a = Float.valueOf(edt1.getText().toString());
b = Float.valueOf(edt2.getText().toString());
Those two are in into the onClick() method

It will be like this
public void onClick(View v)
{
num1 = Float.valueOf(edt1.getText().toString());
num2 = Float.valueOf(edt2.getText().toString());
result=num1+num2;
}
