Issue with primary expression before “<" token

I'm just trying to turn the built-in LED on Arduino Uno to high when a negative acceleration is reached in the Z axis. When I compile the code it gives the error listed in the title of primary expression before token. The second if statement is where I'm getting the error occurring. Any idea on how to fix this?

#include <MPU6050_tockn.h> #include <Wire.h> MPU6050 mpu6050(Wire); long timer = 0; void setup() { Serial.begin(9600); Wire.begin(); mpu6050.begin(); mpu6050.calcGyroOffsets(true); } void loop() { mpu6050.update(); if(millis() - timer > 1000){ float accelZ = (mpu6050.getAccZ()); Serial.print("Still active"); Serial.println("======================================================="); Serial.print("temp : ");Serial.println(mpu6050.getTemp()); Serial.print("accX : ");Serial.print(mpu6050.getAccX()); Serial.print("\taccY : ");Serial.print(mpu6050.getAccY()); Serial.print("\taccZ : ");Serial.println(mpu6050.getAccZ()); if (accelZ) < 0.0 { digitalWrite(LED_BUILTIN, HIGH); } else { digitalWrite(LED_BUILTIN, HIGH); } Serial.print("gyroX : ");Serial.print(mpu6050.getGyroX()); Serial.print("\tgyroY : ");Serial.print(mpu6050.getGyroY()); Serial.print("\tgyroZ : ");Serial.println(mpu6050.getGyroZ()); Serial.print("accAngleX : ");Serial.print(mpu6050.getAccAngleX()); Serial.print("\taccAngleY : ");Serial.println(mpu6050.getAccAngleY()); Serial.print("gyroAngleX : ");Serial.print(mpu6050.getGyroAngleX()); Serial.print("\tgyroAngleY : ");Serial.print(mpu6050.getGyroAngleY()); Serial.print("\tgyroAngleZ : ");Serial.println(mpu6050.getGyroAngleZ()); Serial.print("angleX : ");Serial.print(mpu6050.getAngleX()); Serial.print("\tangleY : ");Serial.print(mpu6050.getAngleY()); Serial.print("\tangleZ : ");Serial.println(mpu6050.getAngleZ()); Serial.println("=======================================================\n"); timer = millis(); } }
